Onto the collection... On first impressions from the first press release that Vogue kindly provided us, I was skeptical. I thought, there is just no way you are going to see me in camo. Then you see it in real life and (maybe only if you're a fellow designer) you see the direction they were going in and start to 'get it'. There's a common basketball-jersey mesh theme throughout the whole collection and upon seeing it, i'm literally in love. My favourites were the mesh maxi dresses and like a fool, I didn't snap one up last night! The mesh crop tees in the same style from the last collection (with the half sleeves) are also gorgeous, especially in the camo and has made it onto my post-student loan wishlist.
There's a ton of gorgeous thick cotton garments (such as the G4LIFE jumpers - I bought one) and they're just perfect for the coming season. I had to grab one!
My last ultimate faves were everything in the digital black and white print - which you may have seen on Rihanna herself and Jourdan Dunn this week at NYFW. It really is beautiful and it will get snapped up very fast - meaning I won't have time to buy - but if you're in a position to, I definitely would. You can choose from a midi length, oversized t-shirt dress (a la Jourdan Dunn), a bodycon mini with long sleeves (a la Rihanna) or some super cute leggings that also don the print. There's also an amazing oversized jumper dress that says 'G4LIFE' at the bottom, and it looks incredible on! Who'd have known i'd have loved everything?
Unfortunately, Rihanna wasn't doing fan pics - I did bump into Kavita from She Wears Fashion though, who was unbelievably lucky to be styled by Rihanna personally - so yeah i'm incredibly envious there, but it was lovely to meet her. I did get some photos from the event though (I was drunk, remember that) for you all to see - it was an amazing party and i'm so grateful to have had the chance to be there. Onto Fashion week!
Sorry for allllll the photos guys! I'm still all excited over it as you can see!
You can shop the collection on-line and in store tomorrow at River Island.
