Rihanna Talks River Island Collection
When Rihanna was seen leaving River Island’s headquarters back in February, speculation started that the girl-wonder wanted to collaborate with the fashion brand to create something with her name on it. Yesterday it was confirmed that we can expect to see clothes designed by Rihanna is River Island soon…
Rihanna said in a statement: "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."
River Island said of the exciting collaboration: "We're so pleased to announce an exciting collaboration with Rihanna. Yep, she will be designing her first clothing range exclusively for River Island.
"We're all huge fans of Rihanna's style here at River Island so you can imagine how flattered we were when she approached us about working together and bringing our fashion experience to her range."
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."
The line is due to be released in Spring 2013.
