Rihanna on River Island collection: 'I made a piece of clothing for everyone in my crew'

Bajan songstress turned designer Rihanna has confessed that her River Island collection is dedicated to her crew.

She is due to launch her summer line later this month and also has an autumn/winter range in the pipeline, but explained in behind-the-scenes footage during a model fitting that she created the items of clothing with her own team in mind and their different body types:

"I made a piece for everybody in my crew, we all have different body types and different tastes - some are braver than others. I think like that because that's how women in the world are. We're all different, we like different things, we have different occasions and different moods."

Her new line will hit stores on May 25 and she added that her main point of inspiration was thinking about things she would be comfortable wearing: "I just wanted stuff that I wanted to wear because at the end of the day that's what got me into designing - seeing things on the rack that were great, but that could have been a little more me."

"Maybe they could have been a little longer or shorter, or have a little more sex appeal or a little less. I wanted to make clothes for fat days; stuff that I want to wear. I was being selfish. Hopefully, my friends and people who shop at River Island will have the same taste."
