Sibling X River Island

Sibling X River Island

This hotly anticipated collaboration has finally landed

 London label Sibling has garnered something of a reputation for its playful subversions of classic knitwear styles, so it comes as no surprise that high-street giant River Island were keen to harness their creative effervescence with an exclusive new range as part of the Design Forum collection.

The Sibling X River Island collaboration draws inspiration from Drew Barrymore in her 90s grunge phase to sex kitten Brigitte Bardot, while Sibling’s love of bright colour is clear, with knitted co-ords and swimwear introduced punchy Barbie pink and royal blue.

 Speaking to Vogue, designer Cozette McCreery said that the collection was a ‘thank you’ to fans of the brand who may not be able to afford pieces from their mainline collection - with prices falling between an affordable bracket of £15 - £55.

 "There's colour, there's print, there's knit techniques, there's sparkle - all boosted by great hand feel and quality - basically all the things that are important to and make us, well, us," she said

 The collection will launch with a special fashion film that will be shown at London Fashion Week before being available to buy online and in selected stores on February 22.
