Rihanna "Ultimate Collection" River Island

After several fashionable seasons, Rihanna has finally debuted her last collection for River Island, also know as ‘The Ultimate Collection’. RiRi has been collaborating with the brand to create pieces with her signature blend of street attitude and femme fatale sexiness. This time around she amped up the sophistication by trading in short skirts and bikinis for more winter friendly pieces with demure hemlines and fuzzy faux-fur trimmed outerwear.

Her final collection is perfect for the holiday season, with sumptuous items such as a black velvet halter maxi dress and a tuxedo dress that comes in a black satin or a luxe gold metallic, perfect for a chic holiday cocktail party. We’re lusting after the bugle bead scoop back dress – the long sleeves and high neck imbue it with covered up class, while the low back keeps the look exciting.

In addition to the lustrous pieces, Rihanna’s collection indulges in her tomboyish side with streetwise outerwear that is ideal for when the mercury drops. We love the tartan and floral patterns that are perfect for a long weekend in the countryside. Rihanna’s collection also has a range of long jackets in denim and florals that will keep you warm even in the coldest of temperatures. The singer said that the furry-sleeved letterman jacket is her favorite because it is “so New York” – we couldn’t agree more. The final Rihanna for River Island collection will be sold in stores and online on November 7th.
