Rihanna To Design River Island Capsule Collection For U.K. Brand

Posted: Updated:

Rihanna's British invasion continues.

The "We Found Love" singer is really digging her heels into England's fashion industry with her upcoming U.K. fashion design reality show "Styled To Rock," and now a clothing with retailer River Island.

The contemporary fashion line is loved for its on-trend threads -- making it a match made in sartorial heaven with Rihanna's signature head-turning style.

“I've been wanting to design my own collection for some time,” Rihanna said in a statement on the store's website. "River Island is the perfect partner for me to collaborate with and working with a British, family run business also really appealed to me. I find London really inspiring and River Island loves to have fun with clothes. I'm looking forward to working with them and creating something really special."

By "very special" we hope she means "wearable." The 23-year-old star has already tried her hand at design with an edition of Armani Jeans and an Emporio Armani underwear collection -- both of which were cute, but limited. We're looking forward to a full blown ready-to-wear collection from the star.

"Rihanna will be designing the collection and we will be sharing our fashion experience with her to develop a range her fans will love," said River Island CEO Ben Lewis.

The collection is set to debut in spring 2013. We'll keep our eyes peeled for images from the line to share with you.
