Back to the future

by Emma Nolan

RIVER Island’s autumn winter collection is an indulgent foray into the best of the 80s.
Unapologetic and verging on tacky in the best possible way, this collection just goes for it in every way possible. Colour, shape, texture, pattern – it breaks all the rules but it works so well.
This maximalist feast for the eyes is bringing back print clashing in a big way and looks are not limited to one statement piece either. Rather ruffles, bows and baroque take over to serve 80s eleganza extravaganza.
And yes… shoulder pads are back…
This collection will be hitting stores in September.
