Rihanna fans rejoice. The shy and retiring starlet has at last launched her clothing collaboration with high street giant, River Island.
RiRi jetted into London to launch the collection on Oxford Street last night. She looked nice….
Now I know her hair is shorter than mine. I’ve seen her on the cover(s) of Elle…
So that giant weave must just be stapled or blu-tacked on, right? I love it. Do you think I could get away with it as a look? My sides are already shaved. Shall I mock up some photoshopped images and do a hair post later in the week?
Meanwhile back at the collection….
I’ve actually recently reignited my love affair with River Island. There was a time when it floated about not being as cool as Topman and Topshop, as chic as Zara, as classic as H&M or as disposable as Primarni.
But you know what, I went in about a month ago where the staff were really friendly (Westfield branch- NOT Oxford St where they are ALL horrible) and really knowledgeable. They found me a pair of skinny jeans. Told me to buy a size down-not to make me feel (even) skinnier but just because they knew what they were on about. Nearly tricked me into buying a gorgeous trench. Actually tricked me into buying some new glasses…. Anyway it was a really nice “retail experience” as they say.
Oh yeah, what about Rihanna?
Well I don’t think Mrs Beckham will be quaking in her Loubouts.
It’s very Rihanna; cropped tees, double denim, oversized Varsity jackets, cropped tees, biker boots, did I say cropped tees?
You can buy it all here and I say all but some of the pieces are “Limited Edition” and ain’t on the site, including some amazing thigh boots I saw Queen Delevigne wearing. (*looks for picture online…)
What would I buy? Well speaking of Cara D, I also saw her wearing this in Paris..
Which is nice. Leather sleeves. £140. A bit pricey but I will reserve judgement until I’ve copped a feel.
Could I wear this over a white shirt. I love a dungaree. It reminds me of my boyband/lesbian/Poptastic youth. And this one is so much easier to go the bathroom in.
What about a leather baseball cap? Obviously the most wearable item in the collection, even with that weave. How many queens on Old Compton Street will be wearing it this weekend? So many!
There js a lovely online magazine with videos and behind the scenes bla bla bla.
