I’m a little late in posting about this, but I got a sneak peek for SS13 at River Island recently when I attended their press day on behalf of work. The atmosphere was very much that of a party, but as I needed to get back to the office I didn’t stay for long, taking pictures and notes and scurrying out in break neck speed.
The key things for me that stood out, and that I’m really looking forward to seeing in-store come the warmer months, are their updated take on bohemian chic and native american influences in accessories. (I posted the necklace of dreams on my instagram).
There were also some rather fabulous ghetto-glam accessories (think Rita Ora and Rhi Rhi) such as bejewelled beanies and leather effect caps with giant plastic chains. No idea how I’m going to weave these into my wardrobe but trust me I Will.
