With an urban cool undertone to the collection, each design resonates Rihanna`s fashion sense allowing fans to fuse an edgy sexiness into their day and evening choices this spring. I must admit that when I first set my eyes upon the designs I wasn`t overly keen, but on closer inspection there are a few pieces that I wouldn`t mind adding to my own wardrobe. For example, the maxi skirt has been given a dramatic thigh high split and the utility jumpsuit gives a nod to the military trend – both garments I could easily wear this season for a laidback style. The multitude of cropped tops are perfect for when the warm weather sets in plus can be worn to create interesting, almost retro looks with the choice of jeans and shorts.

Nineties grunge, a favourite trend of mine for SS13, is evident in the trucker boots and tied denim shirt zip front skirt whilst monochrome comes in the form of black and white striped shirt, bra top and shorts. The colour palette is kept rather neutral sticking mainly to black, grey, white and navy so the use of the vibrant yellow is refreshing and gives certain garments that extra wow factor.

No matter what the fashion critics say though at the end of the day, there will always be an exciting buzz when a celebrity collaborates with a high street brand. Especially when said celebrity is Rihanna!
