The event

River Island usually have some fab treats and a personalised gift at their press days which is such a nice touch. For their ‘High Summer Press Day’ they had some tasty nibbles from The Black Sheep foods. They also had a shoe station where you could pick a pair of sandals and personalise them. I kept it simple with these pink sandals and just added a little gold trim. These pink sandals will be available to buy in River Island.

The collection

I have written full blog posts on the Spring/Summer trends from London fashion week, River Island and Primark press days ( read them here, here and here) so this post is just an overview of some additional pieces that you can expect to see in River Island over the coming months. There was a bohemian vibe to a lot of the styles and lots of pieces in there that would be gorgeous for a summer festivals. The white bell sleeve crop top (pictured below) would be so cute with a pair of denim shorts, a western style belt and some ankle boots for a summer festival. There was lots of fun bright colours and prints in the collection in the form of swimwear and accessories.

There were some classic pieces in the collection such as this jacket, it would be beautiful with a white top and jeans for a summer night out or BBQ.

They also showcased their fabulous occasion wear collection which has a variety of full length dresses including an absolutely gorgeous full length cream lace dress. The photo I took of it doesn’t do it justice so I left it out of the post but believe me, it’s stunning.

Denim featured as heavily as it did in the Spring/Summer collection. There were some more fun denim pieces being introduced such as coloured, distressed denim and an oversized denim jacket with pearl and sequin detail on the back.


There was some lovely footwear in the collection also including some statement pieces such as the gingham and striped sandals as well as the black sandals with tassels, pictured below. These black sandals would be gorgeous with a loose fitting black dress or some black skinny jeans.

There are also some fab holiday pieces including some printed tops, summer dresses and playsuits.
