OH. MY. GAH. The time has finally come, friends: Rihanna’s River Island collection is here! Back in July, we lost our shiz when RiRi announced she was collabing with the British clothing brand, and then almost died AGAIN in early November when she Instagrammed a pic of herself with the caption, “Me! Spring/ summer collection with River Island is in the bag! #designerlife #RIHverIsland.” But today, we have our FIRST EVER look at an actual living, breathing piece from the collection, and we can baaarely handle it. River Island posted a pic of Ri on their Facebook page with the caption, “Rihanna wearing the navy jumpsuit from her Rihanna for River Island collection in LA! Coming to a store near you and online at riverisland.com in spring 2013.” Eeeeee!
It looks like Rihanna’s first piece is a hooded navy micro-suede/velour/silk jumpsuit with a drawstring waist and snap-up top. She sported a super-short ’do (is the pixie cut BACK?!) and thick gold chains to debut her collab, which we love. We can’t say that we’re necessarily surprised that Rihanna created a jumpsuit for her collection, though, as she certainly isn’t a stranger to onesies. (Remember that all-denim piece from her second Armani capsule collection? YUP.) Welp, it looks like we’re going to have to wait until spring to see the FULL collab, but we’ll keep crossing our fingers for more Rihanna/River Island sightings until then. #RIHverIsland, y’all!
