Rihanna x River Island Take Two

Rihanna recently unveiled her second collection for River Island for autumn/winter 2013. The collection will arrive first in September, then again in November. You can expect the collection to carry the same urban sporty feel, much as her debut offering.

Much like the first collection, what’s so great is that you can definitely see Rihanna wearing every single piece – and she does. They’re very few celebrity clothing collabs where you can actually see them wearing the pieces. Some may say the collection is a bit risqué, but it wouldn’t be Rihanna if it weren’t right! Much like Rihanna’s own personal style, the collection is very much ‘sexy tomboy’. As with the first collection, there are alot of pieces you can mix and match and easily slip into your wardrobe.

“The way I approach winter style is to layer up summer clothes and Rihanna does the same….. But there are coats and sweatshirts – those pieces were key. It’s a little more refined.” –Adam Selman

The collection offers sporty lingerie, floor-length mesh dresses,  body-con minis, crop tops, oversized jumpers, hot pants, bomber jackets, slouchy knee-length shorts, baseball tops.

Accessories and shoes include strappy sandals, towering heeled boots, rucksacks and ‘Riri’ slogganed beanies.
