River Island Spring/ Summer '13 - Press Preview

Last week I attended the fabulous River Island Spring/ Summer '13 press preview with Ciara from Wild Child Stories, in their Dublin headquarters. We saw their gorgeous new clothes, swimwear, shoes and accessories - all to be released over the next two-three months. There were different trends and themes for the new season, including tribal chic, stripes, monochrome and the 1960's (see my S/S '13 trend report here). My personal favourite collection was their 1960's-inspired designs; everything from two-pieces, ladylike floral prints, white mesh and polka-dots. The tribal rail was full of boho classics, such as fringed kimonos, camel colours and a heap of embellishment - all ideal for the festival season! River Island are known for their affordable, on trend accessories and they will not disappoint with their new range; white handbags, cut-out shoes and Middle Eastern-inspired jewellery - what's not to love?
Seeing all of the S/ S pieces has me yearning for the brighter days and warmer months - I plan on stocking up on some bits for next season already. I have my eye on the green biker jacket (€161 - in store March 11th) and gold cut-out boots (pictured below). Overall, I think River Island have nailed Spring/ Summer - there's something there for everyone. They've improved a great deal over the last 3-4 seasons, so it was interesting seeing a preview of their future stock. Their prices have remained affordable, along with selling well-made pieces fit for a range of women. (Along with womenswear, River Island also stock kids and menswear.) Happy shopping!

    Must BUY.
    They fit in with the 80's Jean Paul Gautier trend and the minimalist, and monochrome if paired with leather leggings!
