It looks like February's going to bring a big ol' London Fashion Week for River Island. Fresh from the announcement that they'll be staging a catwalk event with You Know Who, the high-street brand du jour has just revealed yet another designer collab. Next month, River Island will unveil a spring/summer '13 capsule collection created by Georgia Hardinge.
Name not ringing any bells? It will. The London-based designer launched her first collection during LFW in '09 and her sculpted and anatomically-inspired creations have since graced the limbs of Beyoncé, Florence Welch, Paloma Faith, and Jessie J.
The 14-piece collection will follow the aesthetic of Georgia's main-line pieces — featuring both clothing and accessories — and promises hip-accentuating dresses and printed separates inspired by Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger. Count us in.
This is River Island's latest hook-up as part of its Design Forum concept, which last season saw a partnership with William Tempest. So far, we're pretty on board with the whole thing.
Georgia's high-street debut will launch via a short film at the Fash/On Film event at London Fashion Week in February, and pieces will land in stores this April.
