I have been saying it for at least a year, so I was pretty pleased when River Island finally announced they were going to do plus size. For ages I have been asked who I would ideally like to venture into plus and River Island has always been the top of the list and I had a sneaky feeling they’d be the next to cave and this is a first look at the new plus collection.
The line which goes from an 18-24 is packed full of River Island style prints, shirt dresses, fit and flare silhouettes and great jackets.
What I love about the River Island line is how true it is to mainline and while they haven’t decided to simply grade up, keeping their style signature is definitely the next best think.
You will also note that the designers haven’t had a major freak out about designing plus size and have sensibly just designed clothes rather than throwing sleeves on everything!
The new line, fronted by Candice Huffine launches on the 9th of March (2 days after my birthday so I will deserve a treat I think) and we can’t wait to see what else lies in store!
