First Look: Rihanna For River Island Autumn/Winter 2013 Lookbook

Rihanna-River-Island-Autumn-Winter-2013-PeacockUnderPressure

Lest you’ve been under a rock for the last year or so, you’ve seen a major fashion transition back to the ’90s. Hat to the back, basketball shorts and the likes have been on hand so often that the only way to differentiate athletes from athletically inspired celebrities is to look at their footwear. Rihanna is one particular lover of the trend as her latest collaborative collection with River Island continues on in the same vein as her previous looks: sexy athlete with loads of body baring flare.

Her Autumn efforts, available partly in September then fully in November, are loaded with crop tops, maxi dresses or skirts and of course, varying choices of baseball jerseys and basketball shorts.

Beanies, cropped sweatshirts, backpacks and lingerie bear Ri Ri’s “G4Life” (or “Gangsta For Life” ringing back to her Rated R album) mantra.

Somebody is feeling guerrilla warfare-ish with every possible silhouette plastered with camouflage. We’re talking a bodycon dress, thigh high boots, leather bralets, skirts and shorts, bomber jackets and knit persuasions.

Aside from the G4Life crop sweatshirts, my top faves are definitely the mirror image mono print dress, the limited edition red leather trousers, and mesh pullovers. Chic shizz.
