It looks like God has finally answered our fashion prayers with the news that Rihanna will be designing a collection with River Island. Now anyone that’s actually been paying attention probably would have seen this coming.
Rihanna was spotted at the River Island Headquarters back in March and she’s also been spotted wearing numerous pieces from the high street brand, which she probably got for free. (Lucky cow)
River Island chief executive Ben Lewis said:
We are thrilled to be collaborating with Rihanna and to be the first fashion brand to work with her in this way Rihanna is a style icon, from street to chic she enjoys her fashion. As soon as we started to work together we knew this was a perfect fit. Rihanna will be designing the collection and we will be sharing our fashion experience with her to develop a range her fans will love.
And Rihanna got her people to send a nice little statement about the collaboration too. (She’s way too busy partying on Yachts to be writing boring ish like this)
I’ve been wanting to design my own collection for some time. River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family-run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I’m looking forward to working with them and creating something really special.
However before you start camping outside your local River Island store, the line comes out in Spring 2013, so you’ve got a while to wait. Hopefully she doesn’t do any designing while she’s drunk, because her fashion sense is already borderline crazy lady.
