Rihanna - Rihanna unveils second River Island collection
Rihanna has unveiled her second collection for high street chain River Island, which will hit stores in two separate releases in September and November.
Rihanna has unveiled her second collection for high street chain River Island.
The 'Diamonds' hitmaker has designed a new range of clothing and accessories for the British brand, which will appear in stores from September.
The Rihanna for River Island autumn/winter 2013 collection will release an exclusive range for autumn next month, followed by a winter range just in time for the festive season in November.
Rihanna's second offering for the high street brand is chock full of the same urban-inspired items as her first collection - which was unveiled at London Fashion Week in February - with floor-length mesh dresses, army camouflage-patterned crop tops and daring body con dresses.
The 25-year-old singer said: ''I literally designed everything I wanted to wear, exactly how I wanted to wear it.''
The new range also features several underwear garments which are emblazoned with Rihanna's nickname, 'Riri', on the rim, as well as 'G4LIFE'. The phrase - taken from her 2009 song 'G4L' - stands for 'gangster for life'.
Rihanna's co-designer Adam Selman commented: ''The way I approach winter style is to layer up summer clothes and Rihanna does the same. But there are coats and sweatshirts - those pieces were key. It's a little more refined.''
The 'Pour It Up' singer personally oversaw the creative direction of the collection's accompanying campaign, which has a ''New York street vibe'' and was shot by photographer Lachlan Bailey.
