Her catwalk show for River Island was one of our highlights of London Fashion Week - and when the collection hit stores, the British public went nuts for it. Since then we hadn’t heard a whisper about a second RiRi for River Island collection - until this weekend that is.
Rihanna, or rather 'badgirlriri' as the Barbadian beauty calls herself on Instagram, Insta’d a picture of herself hard at work with her costume designer and collaborator for her River Island collection - and so it seems the second collection for the high street giant is well under way.

Rihanna captioned the snap of the two during a model fitting with, “Me and my better half @adamselman in design mode!! We went to #WERK on the upcoming #RihannaForRIVERISLAND Autumn and Winter collections! No really, we took it there! Like it’s not fair that you could get this kinda s**t at #RIHverIsland” See what she did there? RIHver Island? Jazzy.
So what can we expect for her second high street range? Her debut collection featured signature RiRi style staples: cropped and double denim pieces, varsity jackets, thigh-high boots and eagle embellished baseball caps. Meanwhile, this latest Instagram snap showed us what looks like a tie-dye-cum-watercolour winter florals printed shorts suit, the typically classic silhouette Rihannafied by turning those tailored shorts into a track short, totally in keeping with her preppy training style she featured last week dressed in Isabel Marant Étoile. How perfectly appropriate for next season, eh?
