Our favorite Bastian singer, Rihanna, will be designer for yet another brand. RiRi worked with Armani earlier this year on a small collection and now she will be working with clothing company River Island for her very own collection.
On the collaboration Rihanna says, “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.”
It’s no wonder the brand would want to work with her. After all, she’s known as a fashion icon in her own right and, she certainly knows how to take fashion risk. Risks we all love to watch. Like the see through mesh top she wore during a visit in New York City. Wasn’t that intriguing.
According to the singer’s official website,
River Island is a brand with Great British heritage. Founded and based in London, the business was created and is managed by the Lewis family. With design at the heart of the business River Island continues to grow globally as it enters its 64th year. River Island has over 300 stores in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Russia, Holland, Poland, Belgium, Middle East and Far East and offers worldwide shipping through its website.
The brand is positioned as a fast-moving fashion business offering great value and distinctive women’s, men’s and kid’s clothing, footwear and accessories.
The collection will launch in sometime in Spring 2013.
