On Wednesday I attended the River Island press preview for the S/S’14 collection.
I was absolutely blown away by the funky new colours and patterns that we can expect to see filtering into the stores over the next few months.
From bold floral prints to graphic designs and pretty pastel colours to bejewelled statement necklaces, this coming season, River Island will have everything you want and more. There were 6 different collections to be viewed on the day: Sports Mono, Classic Plastic, Posh Pastels, Tribal Grunge, Print Clash, and Metallic. Each one more exciting and eye-catching than the last!
I spent the afternoon perusing the beautiful items and making a mental shopping list of what I would like to purchase myself. My own personal favourites have to be the stunning green jumpsuit, the floral embossed leather jackets and the travel cosmetic bag but I have to say, I loved every piece!
Even the menswear and children’s collections were full of wonderfully bright colours and patterns.
Some of the items in the pictures are already available in stores and online however the rest will be coming in over the next few months so keep an eye out incase you miss one of your favourite items!
As well as the fashions on display, there was also an incredible “edible” beach installation made entirely of cake, icing and honeycombe!
The final bonus of the day was that the talented Holly Shortall, top fashion illustrator, was in attendance and was creating images of all of the guests! Check out the cool illustration she drew of me at the bottom of the post!
I would like to say a huge thank you to Emma and all of the team at River Island for inviting me to attend the preview! I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to shop the new collection.
