Hannah Taylor for River Island - in stores now!
Back in October was the press launch for the collection I designed for River Island. It was really exciting to see the garments at last in the flesh, which are currently on sale in all River Island top-stores in the UK, and it can also be found in their online store.
Initially it was going to be just a menswear collection, however its appeal to the tastes of both River Island's male and female customers means the range can be found on both the Menswear and Womenswear floors in the store.
Within the range is the 'Tommy the Turkey' sweater:
The colourful intarisa 'Victor' Cardigan:
The flying duck scarves, 'George' and 'Mildred' (named after my pet ones of course!)
and hats and balaclava's - 'modelled' below by Danny & Donny
I'd appreciate any feedback on the range, and feel free to send any pictures of you wearing it if you've managed to hunt it down! It was fantastic working with the design team and I'm already really looking forward to working on a small collection of ideas for spring-summer within the new year.
