Rihanna’s going phresh out the runway next month at London Fashion Week (and no–we don’t fully understand what that means either)!
River Island’s just announced that it’ll be showing its upcoming design collab with the Barbadian beaut at an “event” on February 16, smack in the middle of LFW.
2013 is already proving to be big for Rihanna’s fashion career: Along with her collection for the UK high street staple, her design competition show Styled to Rock will premiere on the Style Network sometime this year.
As would be expected, River Island is “very excited” about the upcoming presentation, while Rih-Rih says she “can’t wait to see the reaction from my fans and the fashion press!”–which gives us a glimmer of hope that her collection (which we got a small preview of last month) could actually be one worth reacting over.
And, assuming those reactions are of a positive nature, here’s more good news for those of us across the pond: In addition to being available for purchase at River Island and online come March 5, the entire Rihanna x River Island collection will be fully stocked at Opening Ceremony stores in the US and Japan. I think we can all agree that it’s generally safest to try on a jumpsuit before purchasing, so… Cheers, Rih–we’ll drink to that.
