I have to admit that I was kinda sceptical when I found that Rihanna would design a collection for River Island. There are so many celebs trying to make it in the fashion bizz, but only few succeed. Butttt... I was happily surprised when I saw Rihanna's debut show during London Fashion Week, I must say.
The main reason why I love her collection is because it looks like Riri kept two types of women in mind while designing: a woman who is more in touch with her feminine side and the bad ass grungy type of gal. Those who have seen the collection will know what I mean; it's not that hard to put the designs in one of these two categories. Another personal hit? The mix of different kind of colors, prints and fabrics: black, red, yellow, beige, flowers, tie-dye fishnet, see through... We all have at least one piece we'd love to have in our closet, admit it!
I'll probably have to attend some extra pilates classes to look good in Riri's designs -- did you see those leg splits? Dayum! -- but I'll definitely be at the River Island-store on March 5th (if my schedule allows it). I can already see myself strolling around some festival in those asymmetrical dresses, combined with some bad ass combat boots. And I adore the cropped tops with the high neck. So nineties and I'm lovin' it! Can.Not.Wait.
You can relive the fashion show by watching the video below. I also managed to get my hands on a 'Behind The Scenes'-video and a vid that recaps all the highlights of Riri's River Island adventure!
Do let me know what you think about the collection. #Curious ;)
