SNEAK PEEK: Rihanna for RI a/w13

First look at new River Island collection

It’ll come as no surprise to fans of Rihanna that she has given the world an exclusive sneak peek of her second collection for River Island – via Instagram.

In a black-and-white picture, Instaholic Ri adjusts the hem of a patterned jacket while Adam Selman, her stylist and design partner, looks on.

‘Me and my better half @adamselman in design mode!!’ runs the caption. ‘We went to #WERK on the upcoming #RihannaForRIVERISLAND Autumn and Winter collections! No really, we took it there! Like it's not fair that you could get this kinda s--t at #RIHverIsland!’

Rihanna memorably unveiled her debut collection for the high street giant, for spring/summer 2013, on the cover of ELLE ahead of her catwalk show at London Fashion Week in February.

‘The collection was an ode to all things high fashion,’ said ELLE fashion director Anne-Marie Curtis, who was the first person to shoot it. ‘Think Eighties Norma Kamali meets Alexander Wang luxe sportswear. From fluid jersey dresses to sweatshirts to all-in-ones and varying length skirts almost exclusively in a navy, black and white palette, there are myriad options here for even the most discerning fashion eye.’

Considering the first collection was pretty much pitch-perfect, we can’t wait to see what Ri has up her well-adjusted sleeve now she’s getting her designer stride on.
