We’ve often frequented the talented Liz black’s new season showcases and loved what we’ve seen. True to her goal, she always creates completely wearable statement pieces with timeless appeal. So, we’re really excited to hear River Island’s announcement that she’s set to become its next Design Forum Collaborator.
Spanning a timeless colour palette of midnight blues and black, the nine-piece collaboration is said to be influenced by the ready-to-wear pieces and accessories of the Russian princess Anastasia Romanova. It’ll cover dresses, separates and outerwear which is set to feature Russian muffs. Can we smell yet another Clueless revival here? Remember in the film’s spin-off series when Cher made a muff and turned it into a trend at her school?
Whether it’s vintage Cher or an opulent princess' style that you’d like to emulate, this is the perfect winter collection for you. Prices start from £30 upwards, and you’ll be able to get your mitts on the pieces online and at selected River Island stores later in the year. That’s after the initiative's launch at London Fashion Week’s fashion film event, with Mary Nighy directing the short film this time around.
