Fashion can really make us a little bit cray, especially if there's a new kid in town. So ladies (and gents), breathe in, breathe out. River Island is finally here in Manila!!! Joining the ranks of other UK high street brands that we can't get enough of, this 60-year old retail heaven opened their first store in SM Aura Premier last Saturday, November 30th. So why do we dig this brand so much, you ask? Well, two things:
#1 THE RIHANNA COLLECTION
Imagine this: Tartans, denim, black, and metallic with a dose of floral and velvet. Sounds a lot like Rihanna, right? Well, if you're a hard core fan, you'll definitely love her latest collection! Bringing in her signature edgy-sexy aesthetic, the famous R&B singer's 40-piece Winter 2013 collection marks her third collaboration with River Island. As expected, most of the items flew off the shelves and are already sold out online so if you're eyeing on a particular piece, well, you know where to go this weekend!
The collection is not just inspired by Rihanna, it is Rihanna.
#2 OPTIONS, OPTIONS, AND MORE OPTIONS!
The store ain't as huge as the others, but it can still get pretty overwhelming! Racks upon racks of clothes, shoes, and accessories welcomed us during our first visit and we wanted to try them all! The best part? The men's section also has a lot to offer, so if you plan to shop with your significant other, he'd totally find something as well. Win-win!

The Rihanna Winter 13 collection will be exclusively available in River Island Glorietta 5, opening this Saturday, December 7th.
