So a few weeks ago I popped along to the River Island A/W14 press event to see what we could expect from their menswear later this year, I was really impressed with what I saw and I was equally impressed with the recently launched lookbook. Feels a bit weird blogging about A/W half way through a heat wave but it has always been my favourite season, I’m a sucker for warm clothes and lots of layering. The thing that stands out the most for me in this collection is the underlying high fashion element running throughout each look, for me River Island has always been a ‘safe’ brand when it comes to menswear – A/W14 however sees them shaking that off in style. The whole collection is very sophisticated and bold, it seems to be more about fashion statements than basic outfit building which is amazing. The highlights for me are the big focus on black & leather (my current addiction) and the beautiful camel coat, I love the way it’s been style with a belt over it – a simple use of accessories that’s made the outfit so effortlessly stylish. I can’t wait to see the collection hit the stores this autumn!
Until then here’s always their S/S14 collection available in stores and online now.
