River Island’s latest collection for 2019, New League, combines timeless references and combines them with modern styling cues. Think statement prints and classic silhouettes, combined with contemporary styling.
For women think Lady Diana Spencer with Cara Delevingne’s attitude and for men think neatly tailored heritage with a dash of modern sports styling.
Inspired by the classic 80s style of the Sloane Square set, the West-End inspired collection is full of modest hemlines, classic cuts and nonchalant styling from Alice bands to fancy crests and the most enviable athleisure outfits for the school run.
With deconstructed bold prints and amplified repeats, chain motifs, filigree and lots of gold highlights, the collection is a little preppy, a little fancy and unfathomably cool – a collection in a league of its own.
