River Island is one of the heroes of the great British high street. First established in London in 1948, over 60 years and 300 stores worldwide later it is established as one of the foremost high street destinations for fast fashion.

The brand benefit from a London based in-house design team and is known for supporting young design talent with its initiative with the British Fashion Council that features up and coming talent every season.

Previous designer collaborations include Julian J Smith, William Tempest and Eudon Choi. The brand also hosted a yearlong collaboration with singer Rihanna that ended last winter.

When it comes to stocking up for the new season River Island might be better known for its more playful take on the trends (if you’re ever in the market for a multi-colour crop top, staggeringly high platform heels or neoprene mini dress, River Island is your destination), it is also a great bet for those hardworking wardrobe essentials.
