Welp, summer can officially begin, y'all! Rihanna is on the cusp of releasing her second River Island collection, and, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video the London high-street brand released today, we were Rihminded (heh) of just how much we need to get our hands on her warm-weather ready, '90s-inspired pieces. Back in February at London Fashion Week, Rihanna actually ALREADY revealed part of her summer line (remember those killer sheer floral tops and tie-dye skater skirts? Yep, that was it!), but on Saturday, May 25, all her breezy new pieces will be available to purchase in stores and on RiverIsland.com.

In the video, Rihanna arrives sporting a quilted, pastel printed Moschino bomber jacket, giant hoops, THAT "Sex Kitten" tee and immediately gets down to business. She holds up a top with her own portrait on it, which was apparently taken by her BFF and photographer Melissa Forde. All together now: awwww!

Rihanna then tries on one of her favorite pieces, a hooded blue and gray tie-dye jumpsuit, and asks if shoulder pads and a stiffer hood can be added. Then, co-designer Adam Selman asks her how she came up with the custom prints for this collection, and she said, "The floral, I think, is very timeless. Usually it's very chic, very chick, very flirty, and fun, and that's what I wanted. But I don't want it to be typical floral with bright colors, I wanted it to be gangster—a little more muted, so you can wear it with rock 'n roll stuff." She then says that some pieces are certainly "braver than others," but she hopes to appeal to every style of girl with every different body type. Finally, she just stares at her collection and says to herself, "I love everything here." :') To watch Rihanna's summer collection in action, check out the full video below!
