A mere three days after the announcement of her final collection with MAC, Rihanna has revealed the last pieces for her collab with River Island. See? It’s not all modeling hijabs in front of mosques in Abu Dhabi for badgalriri: she does some work, too (JK, she does a lot of work). The collection features a ton of Rih’s signature looks, including crop tops, shirts worn as dresses, and varsity jackets, but she’s swapped patterns and fabrics to make the stomach-baring tops and short hemlines more wintery.
In a behind-the-scenes video posted by River Island, RiRi discusses the winter collection, explaining they incorporated more florals, metallics, and dresses because Rihanna likes a nice dress in the wintertime. She mentions that she likes dresses because “that’s when all the balls happen.” It’s weird because I haven’t been invited to any balls
ever this winter? Whatevz, I’ll still wear some dresses to, like, sit around my house.
The video gives us a peek at a number of new pieces, including a floral-print dress (or a shirt, if you’re not Rihanna), tartan pants, a tartan-lined denim jacket (tartan is a big print in the winter collection, says Rih), and her fave jacket: a furry-sleeved letterman. Sticking with the fur theme, Rihanna shows off a huge, fuzzy white hat which A.) looks very warm and B.) would get dirty so quickly. Please be careful, Rih!
The collection isn’t coming out until November 7th, so you have time to consider what you want and, LBR, think of ways to incorporate that fur hat into your everyday life.
