Rihanna Debuts River Island, Her New Clothing Line, at London Fashion Week


Rihanna took London fashion week by storm on Saturday, debuting her collection for UK high street brand River Island at a fashion show/rager at the massive Old Sorting Office on New Oxford street.

In lieu of a typical runway show, the brand and starlet elected to have an industrial-looking stage on which models posed on different platforms. It was more akin to a concert than a fashion show — which was perfect for a collection that was all about Rihanna, the person and style icon, rather than Rihanna the designer.

Indeed, many of the pieces seemed to be inspired right out of Rihanna’s pre-existing wardrobe. Which, of course, is what everyone wanted. From the knitted maxi dress with thigh-high slit, to the fitted shift dresses, and crop top and underwear combo outfits, you’ll certainly need Rihanna-style confidence (and a Rihanna body) to pull it off.

It’s no wonder the collection read so distinctly Rihanna: The starlet was on-hand backstage to help style the collection and give the final okay before the models went on stage. Just watch.
