River Island Press Event - SS17 Trends & Wishlist

Hello everyone! It's Friday at last yayyy and here at Grace With Love Blog we are feeling one hundred percent ready for Spring/ Summer 2017 after viewing the new season fashion collection from River Island. Last Tuesday Irish media including journalists and bloggers received a sneak peek of the new season pieces at the Press Day Event and believe me we are all in for a treat with the looks the fashion powerhouse has in store for the upcoming SS17 season. There are four main trends in the womenswear collection so read on for details and a first look at the fabulously fashionable pieces dropping in River Island stores and online soon. 

River Island SS17 Press Day 

It was wonderful to receive the opportunity to preview the new season collection in advance of release and to get the chance to learn more about fashion from the fantastic River Island team. On the day I wore a blue grey faux fur leopard print coat borrowed kindly from my mother's wardrobe. The event took place in River Island HQ, Grafton Street Dublin and there were some tasty refreshments on the day such as hot chocolate made from almond milk which I cannot wait to recreate at home! 

Trend #1: Pretty Western 

This collection combines soft and pretty elements such as ladylike frills, florals and ruffles with tough girl components of grunge (think cowboy inspired boots and buckled belts) to create unique Western inspired offerings. From the moment of entering the building, the black embellished cowgirl style playsuit below immediately caught my eye and has a firm place on my wishlist for next season. 

Trend #2: Neo Classic 

The Neo Classic trend offers a "modern approach to smart dressing" in a mainly monochromatic palette. Expect relaxed tailoring, oversized shirts and even an ode to "pirate chic" in this collection, aay aay me hearties! 

Trend #3: Rosa

Rosa is the ultimate girly girl's dream collection with enough sugary pink hues to delight even Damien from Mean Girls! Cute floral prints and beautiful embroidery take the spotlight with matching accessories in pastel and metallic pink. How gorgeous is this floral playsuit? As you may have heard me mention on Snapchat (add here) River Island's playsuit game is strong next season! 

Trend #4: Rouge 

Fresh and exciting for 2017, the Rouge trend is a casual story featuring super wide denim, oversized silhouettes and Americana Bardot styles. Statement slogan t-shirts and jackets such as "trouble-maker" and "heart-breaker" are sure to be the standout stars of this trendy collection also featuring stars, stripes and retro embroidery. 

Coming soon to!
