i don't like anything

Rihanna‘s River Island
collection is back, bringing you enough crop and bra tops to keep you
motivated at the gym this fall/winter season. With the help of designer Adam Selman, Rih Rih dishes out her trademark aesthetic: athletic tomboy streetwear infused with a serving of sex appeal.
Varsity jackets, abbreviated hoodies, baseball jerseys and basketball
shorts are rendered in moody hues like oxblood and black, while
camoflauge and stripes take the lead in print motifs.
The range includes a nod to ’90s hip-hop style, with thick underwear
band straps printed with Rih’s nickname and slogan, ‘G For Life’ on bra
tops, actual panties, tops and accessories.
You can see the influences of some of Rihanna’s favorite designers, most notably KTZ, in a few ornately printed separates.
Shoe options are decidedly sexy. Heels are the name of the game,
coming in the form of sleek sandals, thigh high and high-heeled
workman-inspired boots. Also included are Riri-emblazoned beanies, to
keep your head warm.
Though I can’t help but imagine this as a wardrobe for the the most
stylish (or scantily clad) player on the basketball court, I think there
are lots of pieces here that will appeal to Rih’s trend-crazed
customer. I’m not mad at the camo crop top with the cutouts, or the
hooded striped maxi dress.
Do you see anything here you like?
