So, the second phase of the Rihanna for River Island collection is now available in stores and online. Most of you weren’t particularly impressed by the first drop, and we’d be pretty surprised if the latest release changed your mind, because…
Skirt and top, River Island
Yeah. These exist. As for WHY they exist, well, your guess is as good as ours. River Island aren’t describing them as “beach cover-ups”, however, so we have to assume they’re supposed to be worn exactly as shown. And that some people WILL try to wear them exactly as shown. Anyone else think Rihanna’s just messin’ with us here?
There’s also the small matter of this:
You’ll probably remember that shorts-with-attached-shirts were a big feature of the last Rihanna for River Island collection, and we guess the look must have gone down well, because here they are again. This time, however, they’ve decided to take things even further, with shorter shorts and a longer shirt. Now we just can’t wait for the next release, which will presumably have to include a g-string with an attached cape or something of they want to try to outdo themselves. GOD.
Rihanna isn’t the only person responsible for crimes of fashion at River Island, however. There’s also this:
Even if we DIDN’T hate dungarees, dip-dye and acid wash, we’re pretty sure we’d the combination of all three. Especially considering that these look like they’ve been dipped in blood…
Moving on from River Island, we think we’ve found a fringed item that makes yesterday’s dress look really good in comparison:
Fringe shorts, £38
We’d struggle to decide which pair of shorts we dislike most: the Rihanna ones above, or these fringed ones from ASOS. Let’s just hope our lives never depend on our ability to answer that question.
Finally, anyone want to Dress Like a Toddler?
Miss L Fire Sandals, $114.99
If you’ve not yet graduated to “grown up” shoes, these could well be the sandals for you.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
