Only Rihanna can be tackier than River Island, they are a match made in heaven. I guess River Island was feeling a bit deflated because Dorothy Perkins already snagged the Kardashians, but now the trash wars are very much on.

What's frustrating is River Island can and does produce some pretty nice pieces! They just hide them in a sea of absolute trash that prevents most people ever even going into the stores to look for them! Their quality and make is pretty poor too, but occassionally from an aesthetic point of view, somethings aren't bad for the high street... if you find them. Amongst the diamente studded jeans and spandex dresses..

Haha, not really. Next is aimed at the more middle aged customer. It has a big catalogue that's sent out each season... it's not the same thing really. River Island is loved by teenagers and early twenty-somethings. They don't really have much of a base outside of that age bracket at all.

No teenager would wear Next willingly in my experience!

River Island and the British Fashion Council are pleased to announce the launch of the most anticipated collaboration of 2013: Rihanna for River Island at London Fashion Week. The collection will be showcased at an event on Saturday 16th February.

The show will present the Spring/Summer 2013 collection of clothing and accessories designed by Rihanna to the world’s media and her fans for the first time.

Since the announcement of the collaboration in July 2012, fans of both River Island and Rihanna have been waiting with bated breath to get their hands on the product.

The collection will launch globally in River Island stores and on-line on Tuesday 5th March and exclusively in the United States and Japan at Opening Ceremony.

"We are very excited to present our Rihanna for River Island collection at London Fashion Week. This is the perfect platform to showcase Rihanna’s design talent and ambition" - Ben Lewis, River Island Chief Executive


"Launching at London Fashion Week is a dream come true for me. I have wanted to design my own collection for a long time and to present my collection for River Island alongside all of the other great design talent at LFW is a real privilege. I can’t wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!" - Rihanna

The campaign was shot by Mario Sorrenti featuring Jourdan Dunn, Ataui Deng, and Bambi Northwood-Blyth too.

Well, I don't know if anyone else saw the show. Skirts with fake denim jackets sewn onto them? Cheap see through jersey with slits so high you can see literally everything... wow. I was expecting to see some trash, but wow.

Its better than the house of Dereon but thats not saying much either lol. It was hard to focus on the clothes, with "motherF****r" being repeated every 3 seconds.

I didn't the collection. I thought it was a good think that every model looked like her and was styled like her. The problem is Rihanna style is not original nor is it unique. I enjoyed it more than Kanye's and Gwen Stefani's.

She really is appropriate for RI. Cheap and trashy X2.
