Rihanna for River Island – LFW


Normally, reporting on a celebrity based fashion line showing at London Fashion Week would not appease my interest. Celebrities turned fashion designer is a whole other article or seven in itself. Typically, LFW hosts glittering and tasteful catwalk events showcasing high-end creative geniuses like Tom Ford, Vivienne Westwood and Christopher Bailey for Burberry but editors and Rihanna fans were impatient and anticipating her fashion designing debut in a high-street collaboration with River Island.

Considering she showed up an HOUR late for her nine minute show,  Rihanna was already under scrutiny before the show even got underway. Unfortunately, the girl proved doubters accurate. This show was horrendous, trashy and the Baywatch inspired swimsuit says it all.

Was Rihanna completely baked in creative design mode? I guess we can’t blame the marijuana, seeing as she didn’t “design” this collection on her own. With the help of Adam Selman, she tried her hand at satin thigh-high slit dresses, bra tops and crop tops, crotch flashing mesh wear – barf – denim matching bottoms, and seriously… nipples everywhere people.

Perhaps, she deemed herself “acceptable” to LFW utilizing smoke machines – she’s an admitted chronic – and embracing the term ‘fashionably late’. Sorry dear, no dice.

The collection was entirely ‘Rihanna’ and completely unwearable. Put bluntly, the show was a horrific ode to the 90’s, described as a “horror show”. Way to go Rihanna, you are the “ONLY GIRL (IN THE WORLD)” who would wear this shit.
