Getting into the spirit of next season has really been very easy this year with the most wonderful selection of new trends to choose from. Today I had a peek at the new collection from River Island who always show off the best of the high street. With four stories to choose from Blogger, Baroque, Prim, Downtown and Futuristic Goth from which to take your pick, every style is catered for.
Downtown is everything its name says. Very New York, very 90s and full of great fabrics like tweed and herringbone. Blogger is fun with a very mismatched feel to it (the press release says “organised chaos”) and represents the new generation of media. Baroque is luxury with a capital L. Embroidery and embellishment are the trends in vintage inspired pieces with a contemporary edge. Futuristic Goth is a story dominated by leather and metallic pieces with some longer style blazers being my favourite. Prim is all about the 50s with some elegant tailoring which will take you to work looking stunning. All the above make up a great, strong collection which will drop into stores from now until Christmas.
