The Philippine fashion scene is ready for another exciting UK high-street fashion label: River Island. The brand boasts of stylish, unique and affordable fashions, among the reasons it stands out from the rest of the high-street labels, as it opens at SM Aura Premier and Glorietta 5.
It offers anything you’ll ever need to create an ensemble for casual dates or red hot nights on the town. With amazing denims and fabulous shoes and accessories, River Island awakens each and every individual’s fashion sense.
River Island’s AW13 collection’s mix of color, texture and print are catwalk-inspired, but very wearable.
Lending a casual, easy vibe to career clothes, the Workhouse trend includes denim dungarees best worn with printed knits and vibrant dense wool coats. Flashes of camouflage are found even in fur-lined aviator jackets and other knitwear.
Adding a twist to last year’s black-and-white stripes, the Mono trend evolved into a more structured look, highlighting monochromatic graphic prints finding their way into chunky knits, jackets and jeans. Faux furs are mixed with leather to toughen up the look a bit, while still working that overall chic feel.
River Island’s Teen Spirit line showcases the ’90s grunge era dedicated to dainty winter floral dresses worn in contrast with heavy-duty coats and chunky biker boots. Classic checks and
tartans blend well with vintage-inspired kimonos and ombré fur coats.
To complete the totally eclectic story, lovely lingerie slips and camisoles team with oversized coats and loose knits.
River Island has also collaborated with singer and superstar Rihanna with a style collection called “Rihanna for River Island,” which oozes with sex appeal and an edgy line of this season’s trends centered in sporty-street cool.
With over 60 years of fashion retailing experience, River Island has over 300 stores in 15 countries across the UK, Ireland, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, making it one of the most successful companies in the high-street fashion landscape. After the opening of the first branch at SM Aura, River Island is set to introduce another branch at Glorietta 5, the store which will carry the River Island x Rihanna Collection.
Robinsons Specialty Stores Inc. (RSSI) is the exclusive franchisee of River Island in the Philippines.
