Rihanna for River Island second collection unveiled

Following the launch, earlier in the year, of the inaugural Rihanna for River Island collection (reviewed by The Style Examiner), British brand River Island has unveiled images of a second womenswear collection inspired by the singer for autumn/winter 2013.

Scheduled to hit River Island stores in two tranches in September and November 2013, the collection conjures a sense of urban rebellion inspired by military garments and sportswear, as evident in the prevalent camouflage prints and mesh fabrics. Silhouettes combine fitted and loose lines in pieces such as cropped tops, bomber jackets, column dresses, relaxed knee-length shorts, oversized jumpers, sporty lingerie and hotpants.

A range of high-heeled boots, strappy sandals, rucksacks and beanie hats complements a collection that, although not entirely innovative on the design front, will undoubtedly prove to be popular with Rihanna’s fans.
