So I went along to the Fashion Insider Evening held at the new River Island store in Brooklyn Mall. The event was hosted by A Fashion Friend’s Robynne Kahn and 5FM’s DJ Poppy Ntshongwana. I must tell you that I am rather fond of River Island, check out my post “A Dapper Dandy Delve’s into Dots” where I talk about my dotty shirt from River Island. It was a great evening and I met some really awesome people.
The beauty who serves as the featured image for this post, Thandozi, works at River Island and rocks a style which is fashion forward yet at the same time, classically elegant. Loved taking pictures of her.
The guys in the mens department were so engaging and on hand to suggest items from their range. One minute I was discussing fashion trends with the trendy assistant, the next we were playing FoozBall on the table they have just for guys.
I am no good at FoozBall. Will rather stick to things that I actually understand!
I thoroughly enjoyed browsing through the mens section, I have an appreciation for the River Island brand, the cut and styling of their items feels so comfortable to me.
Here are some of the items that caught my eye.
Short-sleeved button up shirts are trending for guys this summer. They give any outfit that extra bit of style and River Island have a stunning selection of these shirts to choose from.
I especially love this acid wash denim shirt. The retro washed out look is great for summer.
This blue jacket is another great addition to any summer wardrobe. On its own with a pair of jeans, or with the matching pants as a suit, paired with brown leather brogues. The light weight fabric and soft tones will finish off any summer look.
River Island also stock a great selection of shoes, from formal brogues to quick and easy summer shoes. These brown leather slip on’s caught my eye; love the tassel detail which lends a sense of distinction to an otherwise casual shoe.
A few other items and accessories I also enjoyed-
