There’s a sense of brighter days ahead within River Island’s vibrant and punchy new collection. Taking inspiration from the catwalk, the collection centres on various key trends for spring/summer such as Eighties power dressing and Nineties maximalism which conjures up images of supermodels in St Tropez from a bygone era.
Denim also comes through as a trend worth taking note of in the form of a split hem midi skirt and wide leg jean culottes which will no doubt be bestsellers as we move into spring. And while the collection certainly exudes the ‘more is more’ aesthetic with an urban twist, it also consists of pared back utilitarian pieces that form the backbone of any spring wardrobe – the camel trench coat is high on our wishlist.
