The chill in the air can only mean one thing. Winter is coming, and along with it, the end of Rihanna's design gig for River Island. It's been a fruitful partnership that's brought shoppers things like a mesh camo cropped jersey, leggings that say "G4Life" and a tie-dye jumpsuit.
For her last go-round, the singer is showcasing a slightly more toned-down collection in shades of black, gold and red. It wouldn't be a Rihanna collaboration without a crop top or two—this time, the versions are tight, turtlenecked and done in black, a red tartan and a dark moody floral. There are also open-toe stilettos and, if you get cold from all that exposed skin, there are faux-fur Cossack hats (which she can't wait to wear).
The entire collection is available for pre-order now and will officially go on sale November 7.
