The 80-piece collection incorporates a mix of urban sports lux with sophisticated chic. With a strong emphasis on clean yet glamorous dressing and a nod to streamlined sportswear.
Metallic, tartan, camouflage, floral, stripes, denim leathers and other high shine fabrics like vinyl and wet look are used cohesively. Soft jersey maxi’s, leather bra tops, bomber jackets, camouflage over the knee boots, mesh dresses, beanies, cropped hoodies and underwear with a carefully put together colour palette balance the contrast of hard and soft in the range.
The autumn collection goes on sale on 12th of September. It consists of the more sportier elements of the collection, whilst the winter collection out in November, consists of the more glamorous elements of the range, just in time for the party season. Both ranges will be sold in selected River Island stores globally and online. As with SS13 both collections will also be sold exclusively in the United States and Japan at Opening Ceremony.
