Riri has definitely planned a stylish Christmas for her fans and for every crazy fashion lover out there, such as myself, as each piece in this collection is very wearable even though here in Nigeria we may not experience the same weather climate as our international counterparts.
Tartans, denim, black and metallic inject the rock and roll edge to the range while the floral and soft fabric like velvets and faux furs present a softer side, the combination of soft and hard has been an underlining theme of the entire collaboration expressing strength and fearlessness.
The Limited Edition collection features black leather skinny trousers, black snakeskin embossed bra top, shorts and skirt, faux fur trucker and Cossack hats. With only 100 pieces of each item made and in line with all previous collections, they’re expected to fly off the shelves quickly.
Here is what Rihanna and the CEO of River Island had to say about the Rihanna X River Island Winter 13 collection.
‘We’ve had an amazing year working with Rihanna. She’s been an inspiration for our creative teams to work with and we’ve been constantly impressed by the amount of time and energy she’s invested in the project. Reactions to the collaboration have been very positive from fans around the world and we’re excited to see how they respond to her last collection for River Island’ Ben Lewis River Island Chief Executive
‘With River Island, I mean it was brand new in the beginning; they let me do whatever I wanted to do. I was inspired by so many things for the spring collection and I really got to get my hands dirty. For Autumn Winter, I really wanted to try and incorporate some of these ideas with different techniques.’ Rihanna
As with SS13 and Autumn 13, collections will also be sold exclusively in the United States and Japan at Opening Ceremony.
For those who would prefer to buy from the shops, the collection would hit all River Island stores on the 7th of November 2013, so brace yourselves for a Ririfilled Christmas.
