Rihanna to design a collection for River Island
River Island has revealed that music artist Rihanna will design a capsule clothing collection for the apparel retailer, which will launch in stores next year.
She has already teamed up with Italian luxury label Armani for a limited edition line of clothing and lingerie, and now Rihanna is set to conquer the high street by teaming up with UK store River Island.
While details are currently scarce, the songstress announced July 16 that her capsule collection will launch at the high street retailer for Spring 2013.
“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,” said the singer in a release.
“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 is known for its affordable, catwalk-inspired statement pieces which are strong on embellishments and prints.
