River Island Launches Plus-Size Collection

March 2016.

That is when River Island is launching their new plus-size collection ‘RI Plus’ – selected core and main styles in sizes UK18-24. Yay! According to Vogue, the collection will comprise pieces from all areas of the brand’s collection – from party and workwear to core basics and denim – and will be available in top stores as well as online.

Ultimately, it’s about fashion and being inclusive.” (River Island marketing director Josie Roscop).[/dt_quote]

The beautiful Candice Huffine will front the campaign for the new collection. She says to Vogue: “The fact that River Island is extending their sizing while staying true to their brand is perfection,” Huffine said. “It’s clear that they have thought about a curvy woman’s body and designed accordingly, while giving her exactly what can be found on the high street at any other size. A plus-size collection doesn’t need to be made totally different, it just needs to be made to fit.”

RI Plus will land in early March 2016, with prices ranging from €8 to €110.
