RIHANNA has unveiled her second collection for River Island for the first time and we have pictures of every single piece to show you. The autumn/winter 2013 range – which arrives in two separate drops, in September and then in November – carries the same urban feel as her debut high-street offering, although this season imbues a more glamorous sporty edge.
“The way I approach winter style is to layer up summer clothes and Rihanna does the same,” the singer’s co-designer, Adam Selman, told us last month. “But there are coats and sweatshirts – those pieces were key. It’s a little more refined.”
Even if the collection may be a little too daring for some people to wear day-to-day (we can’t all be brave enough to step out in thigh-high, skyscraper-heeled camouflage boots), you can imagine Rihanna wearing every piece. Think sexy tomboys and you’re not far off – there are crop tops, sporty lingerie, bomber jackets, floor-length mesh dresses, body-con minis, slouchy knee-length shorts, oversized jumpers and tiny hotpants. Accessories come by way of towering-heeled boots and strappy sandals, as well as rucksacks and beanie hats emblazoned with a “Riri” slogan.
Whether or not Rihanna will show once again at London Fashion Week as she did last season remains to be seen, but this collection is sure to appeal to the loyal Rihanna Navy come what may.
