Rihanna for River Island.. Uh oh..



Uh oh.. It looks like everyone hates Rihanna's fashion collection for River Island and it got some really hmmm.. interesting comments from fashion critics. 

According to Riri "The girl that would wear this is full of personality, full of sass, but just loves fashion - most of all, they love fashion. They want to express themselves through what they wear and that's what I like to do."
Tom Sykes of Daily Beast Fashion, in a piece entitled “The Horror! The Horror! Rihanna’s Porny Debut At LFW,” said:
“There were few who anticipated a fashion triumph, but, even allowing for the limited expectations, Rihanna’s collection for River Island as brought forth in London tonight was a horror show.The clothes were hideous and without an ounce of panache or style between them.”
“True, there were some consolations. For example, if you really, really like belly buttons, if you are totally nuts for navels, then this could be the collection for you. If you only feel capable of wearing clothes on the lower half of your body if they are slashed up to your waist, then again, you are in luck.”


Pedestrian Tv: 

“The collection itself was kinda basic, but perhaps that was the point. Like the singer’s seventh album in as many years, the collection was never going to reinvent the wheel, so the major discernible incentives for Rihanna in presenting a collection for a high street retailer are obviously a) commerce, commercial appeal and b) clothes for Rihanna herself to wear on various super yachts while being her usual blunt self.”
The Associated Press (a little bit kind):

“No one went to Rihanna’s Saturday night debut as a fashion designer expecting demure dresses set off with tasteful pearls. So no one was surprised by the double-volume hip-hop music, smoke machines and champagne that greeted guests at the unveiling of her Rihanna for River Island collection.”

“And few were taken aback by the bad girl, rock chick styling of some of her clothes, with tight-fitting jersey outfits and dresses cut to show more than a bit of leg. It was a fun, flattering collection aimed at young women, containing nothing shocking or outrageous from a singer who has been known to bring those elements to her live performances.”






Better luck next time Riri ♥
