Rihanna for River Island High Summer

Yesterday we got a preview of the High Summer collection Rihanna has done for River Island which hits selected River Island shops tomorrow, May 25th.

A follow-on to her debut collection in February, this is a more wearable collection with the stand out piece being those strappy sandals, which come in black and nude (€110).

Other eye catchers are the boy shorts and sheer blouse combinations, the red ones are teamed here with a body chain from River Island’s main line collection which is one of our favourite looks from the line.

The line is varied and seeing it on paper really doesn’t do it justice – seeing it “on” looked so much better. The collection features everything from a red Baywatch-esque one-piece swimsuit, an embellished baseball cap,  red high waist bikinis, and crop tops; marl t-shirts, floral trousers, a denim jacket, and jumpsuits in tie-die. The tie-die is the subtle (not tacky) sort, with a tie die parka looking appealing and the fabrics in general felt good, not cheap to touch.

Rihanna has been seen wearing lots from this line and explains what inspired the clothes this time around saying:

“I just wanted stuff that I wanted to wear because at the end of the day that’s what got me into designing – seeing things on the rack that were great, but that could have been a little more me,” said Rihanna. “Maybe they could have been a little longer or shorter, or have a little more sex appeal or a little less. I wanted to make clothes for fat days; stuff that I want to wear. I was being selfish. Hopefully, my friends and people who shop at River Island will have the same taste.”

Irish Model Roz Purcell, pictured above, wore the pieces from the high summer range well but in general these are pieces that you don’t have to be a tall model or size zero to wear. Have a look for yourself in the gallery below.

Availability: Online at www.riverisland.com  and in the following River Island shops from tomorrow, May 25th River Island Grafton St, Henry St, Dundrum, Blanchardstown, Cork.
