Rihanna has unveiled a preview of her second collection for River Island, which is due to arrive in stores on May 25. Join the singer on a model fitting, as she explains what inspired her latest spring/summer 2013 high street line in a new behind-the-scenes film.
“I just wanted stuff that I wanted to wear because at the end of the day that’s what got me into designing – seeing things on the rack that were great, but that could have been a little more me,” said Rihanna. “Maybe they could have been a little longer or shorter, or have a little more sex appeal or a little less. I wanted to make clothes for fat days; stuff that I want to wear. I was being selfish. Hopefully, my friends and people who shop at River Island will have the same taste.”
Watch the star and her co-designer Adam Selman as they peruse the rails, holding up jumpsuits covered in floral and tie-dye prints, simple dresses in black and pink, an oversized military-style khaki jacket, a high-waisted skater skirt and slinky crop top.
“I made a piece for everybody in my crew, we all have different body types and different tastes – some are braver than others,” she said. “I think like that because that’s how women in the world are. We’re all different, we like different things, we have different occasions and different moods.”
