I can assure you that 90% of bloggers in attendance are going to gush and gush about the collection
but I hombres am not one of those bloggers. I am going to be very honest!
Look I love the nineties sure I was less than a twinkle in my dads eye when they began but its my favourite decade, I also a good thigh high slit maxi but its nothing I haven’t already bought and worn to death, I’m not sure what I was expecting Riri (or rather the real designer behind the shambles) to come up with but this was… well lets say lacklustre.
It was set to beats about ‘bitches, niggers, fucking and being nigger rich’ what great soundtracks huh?
Between you and I, I’m not a hater I’m all for celebrities doing their thing their thing being causing drama -that I can read on the morning communte of the Daily Fail/Mail, smoking pot, wrongly influencing youth etc) however ‘designing’ (again I will digress and say nothing about what really went on) isn’t something Rihanna needs to be doing.
River Island next time please give the platform to a bright young designer as per usual. Give me something new and fresh not just a regurgitation of what is getting the highest notes on Tumblr.
Enough from me I’ll let the photos of the ‘collection’ do the talking after all theres an after party I’m in two minds to attend!
Comment and let me know what you think… Maybe I’m wrong but I doubt it lol.
