Will You Wear Rihanna’s Second River Island Collection?
Despite skepticism, Rihanna’s debut collaboration for UK-based high street label River Island was actually a huge hit. Debuting earlier this year at London Fashion Week (trumping Tom Ford on the official show roster, no less), the range of what the popstar calls "sassy" pieces resonated with girls looking to spunk up their wardrobe with some edgy flavor at surprisingly accessible price points. The positive reviews have inspired RiRi to #WERK on a follow-up capsule.
This nugget of news was spotted on Instagram—the singer’s apparent source for blasting anything and everything to her crazy-loyal fan base. She posted a photo of her working with her River Island collaborator, Adam Selman, and captioned it with: "Me and my better half @adamselman in design mode!! We went to #WERK on the upcoming #RihannaForRIVERISLAND Autumn and Winter collections! No really, we took it there! Like its not fair that you could get this kinda shit at #RIHverIsland."
Similar to the first effort, expect tons of ’90s hip hop-inspired designs, like baggy jeans, crop tops and generally club-ready gear. Besides being available at River Island in the UK, the collection will likely be sold at Opening Ceremony in the states. Will you be first in line?
