Fancy a little RiRi in your summer wardrobe? Well, you can have a piece of the star, courtesy of her second fashion collection for River Island. While her first collection was a hit it seems the singer hasn’t let the success go to her head. In this recently released video, Rihanna attends the model fitting for the collection and really gets stuck on the finer details of the fit of each, and every garment (a shoulder pad needed here, a stiffer hood wanted there). What struck us as we watched the film was how focused she was on providing clothes that women all over the world would love to wear.
Yes, the genesis of this collection came from the singer wanting clothes that were totally “her” but as she explains, "I made a piece for everybody in my crew; we all have different body types and different tastes, and some are braver than others. I think like that because that's how women in the world are. We're all different, we like different things, we have different occasions and different moods." Genius. You’ve got till May 25 to wait for the collection to drop online and in stores. You can preview the designs in the campaign images ahead, and then start counting down the days. (River Island)
