Rihanna for River Island - Autumn/Winter 2013/14 Collection

She's back again! After her iconic debut clothing collection with River Island earlier this year, Rihanna didn't keep us waiting too long for another immaculately designed collection for us to covet, for the Autumn/Winter 2013/14 season. Even though everyone is still in summer mode, the release of Autumn/ Winter collections never fails to cause ripples of excitement to move through designer and high-street lovers alike.

The pop-culture icon has stuck to her initital aesthetic of sport-luxe vibes, with a strong urban theme. Prints of camo and bold stripes pop, as well as striking textures like leather trousers, quilted bomer jackets, and mesh crop tops are also included. The collection features somewhat typical Autumn/Winter tones of deep burgundy, black, and army green with flashes of neon yellow for the braver ones out there! Rihanna has cleverly taken note of key silhouettes for the coming season of cut out shoulders, and cocoon cropped jumpers.

My standout pieces from the much anticipated collection are the striped midi dress, and cocoon cropped sweatshirt in the stunning shot below!

Take a look at the other campaign shots, taken on the streets of New York by photographer Lachlan Bailey. All that's left now is to wait and see if we will be treated to another runway show, like the unveiling of her first collection at London Fashion Week earlier in 2013. Fingers crossed!
