Rihanna’s Final Collection For River Island!

River_Island_rihanna_winter_landinghero

It’s called a ‘winter collection’… I’m not sure how cold winters will get for Rihanna, but for now it looks like I will be catching the flu wearing most of the outfits in her collection for River Island this season. I must say the collection as a whole has a good ‘vibe’ though. When Rihanna’s first collection for River Island was shown during London Fashion Week people were a bit shocked about the unconventional outfits. But I guess that’s what Rihanna is about, right?

In addition to sparkling dresses and skirts with a lot of glitter and glamour, the collection also contains items typically winter-wear like faux fur hats, hooded tops and puffer jackets. And, ofcourse, tartan patterns will be welcomed! Check it out on Vogue!

 

Tartan it is!

I didn’t think they would ever be coming back soon… But the grunge look has definitely landed! I think the last tartan I’ve seen was back in the ninetees, but this winter season you really can’t ignore this fashion hype. But why should you? It surely is a winter season pattern. Especially in the combination deep red/black, which is originally used.

Let’s take a look at some nice pieces combined in an outfit.

Underneath the Karl Lagerfeld leather & wool biker jacket with a white bow tie blouse and a black and denim knee long skirt (both H&M), combined with black stiletto booties by Sam Edelman and you are ready to go!

Below a combination with a grunge girl Bankfashion sweater with a faux leather skirt from H&M and, ofcourse, a pair of Jimmy Choo short black biker boots. Wear it with black 20 denier tights and charm bracelet like this one from Saint Laurent and your grunge look is complete!
