EXCLUSIVE : River Island announce the release of the final Rihanna for River Island collection; Winter 13 , on 31st October
SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST!
Following a successful collaboration with the Spring Summer and Autumn 13 collections, River Island is pleased to announce the release of the final Rihanna for River Island collection; Winter 13.
The 40-piece winter collection which goes on sale in stores and online on November 7th, consists of glamorous and sexy pieces with the entire collection just right for the party season. Oversized varsity jackets, matching tartan seperates, embellished party dresses, longer lined tuxedo jackets and denim jumpsuits are the key pieces in the range.
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.
The complete collection will be available for pre order at http://www.riverisland.com from the 31st of Oct.
As with SS13 and Autumn 13, collections will also be sold exclusively in the United States and Japan at Opening Ceremony.
‘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
