River Island - Spring/Summer 2011...


It feels strange to be bringing SS11 to the table whilst there's snow (well more like sludge now) covering my street. But hey ho seasons shmeasons, these are some shots from the River Island Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook. Can't say its got me that excited. In fact i'm starting to wonder if i've picked up photos from New Look rather than River Island...not that that is a bad thing. Maybe R.I just can't trump their impressive A/W collection.

I'm seeing some designer inspirations within the pieces...Marc by Marc Jacobs with the multi coloured stripes. Rodarte with the tassles. Chloe with the Camel vs Denim.

Some other pieces from the lookbook clearly influenced by the 80's and Miami Vice with crisp white blazers and flourescent pink and purple trousers and top combos. Which is not for me. Also a lot of full A-line floral skirts - cute. Typical, but cute.

I'm a tad concerned about the cut on the polka dot jumpsuit, i mean, really? Although the feather print trousers and slouchy vest will be on my hit list for Summer.

What do you think of the lookbook? Everyone knows it's all about Topshop in the Summer anyway so....

I just seen the polka dot jumper in a magazine this morning. I would wear those first 2 outfits!

the stuff is nice enough but doesn't strike me as everyday wearable.

Hmmm...I'm not overly keen on anything. It's weird that Primark got me more excited! Like the look of the red shoes, and you're right, the last photo does look very Chloe.

I agree with you that they haven't done much to excite; i do love the red shoe and I like the simplicity of the 'parisian stripes' but overall its just above average, but do check their accessories (sorry for the self plug lol) but they are divine especially the brown leather bag.
