Rihanna x River Island


It was pretty much what everyone talked about both before and after the show at LFW. Before probably because it was Rihanna’s first and River Islands biggest design collaboration to date and after definitely because people seemed to be very surprised of what we saw on the night. I have to say I was among the surprised, but my grungy, rocky predictions were proven wrong with a very sleek, minimal collection. A range of very versatile pieces stripped back from the unnecessary fuss, and a long list of separates I look forward to wearing this spring.

Congrats on a successful collection to both RiRi and RI - wait what? That can’t be a coincidence!

I don't really like this collection... I don't know, but nothing seems really "wearable" to me. I wonder why all the models aren't wearing any bras hahaha!

Great post!

Such a great collection! Although maybe it's not street fashion, I do like the concepts the designer created in this collection!

I think a few people saw this collection as unwearable, but personally, I thought it was spot on. I think its important to remember that you aren't wearing all the pieces at once, but integrating them into other outfits and that makes it much more wearable.
Go Rihanna!

I love her collection, I also think that her pieces would be really wearable when styled with other pieces not from the collection! xxx

hhhhm I'm not sure about RiRi;s pieces yet; I have mixed feelings about them but no doubt once I see you donning them on your blog, there will be no mixed feelings at all. I'm guessing I will be at River Island with my credit card!

This is the first time I've seen some this collection which I was really excited about. Feeling a little disappointed as I probably wouldn't wear most of it - my midriff isn't up to it these days! Thanks for the post - good pics x

Marta said...

I personally don't like her, but there's definitely gonna be something nice and it'll be cheap, so I definitely gotta visit RI!

love the 90's trend and this collection is such a homage to it. definitely looks wearable to me! obviously not how the models are styled but the individual pieces will work with so many differnt styles and outfits.

You're so lucky to get to go see this, were you at the box afterparty? I bet it was fun, so sad I missed bad gal ri ri.... but thanks a lot for sharing Sandra. I've just post up my new punk meets high fashion look, I mean other than the creepers which aren't actually punk, I hope the flat metal studs on them is an excuse enough to strut in them. Do tell me what you think and whether I provoked in punk ;)

The collection doesn´t look so bad. Why is the press complaining so much about it and calls it a disaster?

I read bad reviews online after the show. Then I saw the collection. I personally have no problem with it. I love every piece and consider them all very wearable. River Island deliver to Nigeria. Hopefully they put the collection online so I can grab myself a few pieces. Worth saving up my pay for.

I love how you can see her in the collection, I hate when a celebrity does a fashion line and it doesn't look like anything they'd wear! These clothes so look like things she'd wear!

Seems like a crazy successful show, and I love the collection. Sleek and minimal is great.

Nice show! I really like the white dress in the first picture. It's a good choice for bar/disco outfit (with some underwear of course).

I was very surprised myself.
Enjoyed the live stream and saw a lot of pieces I want to get.
