We're looking fashion forward


“Something lazy and a bit dreamy”: that’s how designer Ashish Gupta describes his team-up with River Island. The gender-neutral 15-piece collection sees Eastern and Western influences spiked with bursts of his trademark sparkle, all at bank-mollifying prices. See you at the till…

The Collection

Ashish’s signature pairing of sportswear and sequins is back, including an array of fun slogan sweatshirts and pyjamas. They’re genderneutral too, so watch out for your partner trying to ‘borrow’ your new favourite jumper.


The Launch 

The River Island Design Forum x Ashish Collection will drop at London Fashion Week Festival at an interactive pop-up space, running 21-24 September. Visitors will be among the first to shop the collection, while you can see the full range at riverisland.com from 21 September.

Join the Conversation

As part of London Fashion Week Festival, Stylist’s Harriet Hall will be hosting a Q&A with three female influencers on ‘Identity and Self-Expression in the Digital Age’ in partnership with River Island. The talk will take place at The Store Studios, 180 Strand, WC2R on Sunday 24 September at 12.15pm.

The second talk we’ll be hosting with River Island is ‘the power of communities in creative industries’ on Friday 22 September at 18:45. Given just how much of a hold social media and the internet have over our day-to-day lives, it’s easier to connect with people around the world than ever before—but it’s also more important that we think about how we make those connections work for us. That’s why River Island have invited creative agency Babyface to discuss the benefits of building and sustaining networks, both online and out there in the real world.

As the nights draw in, you’ll probably find yourself reaching for an old favourite sweater. They grizzly grey one you bought a lifetime ago is fine but why not do yourself a favour and give those comforting clothes a sequin-heavy snazzy revamp and pick up something from Ashish Gupta’s brand new gender-neutral range for for River Island.
