In Hollywood, everyone’s a singer, an actor, and of course, a fashion designer—regardless of talent. So it should come as no surprise that songstress Rihanna will join her peers in creating her first fashion collection, which is set to debut in Spring 2013. Rihanna’s debut line will come in the form of a capsule collection for British brand River Island.
In a statement released today, River Island chief executive Ben Lewis said: “Rihanna is a style icon, from street to chic she enjoys her fashion. As soon as we started to work together we knew this was a perfect fit. Rihanna will be designing the collection and we will be sharing our fashion experience with her to develop a range her fans will love.”
One thing is for sure: girlfriend does take sartorial risks. And although we’re a bit wary of celebrity collections, Ri-Ri’s style is interesting enough that we’ll be looking forward to seeing what she comes up with.
