London Fashion Week favourite Ashish has teamed up with River Island for a gender-neutral collection that’s bound to be an instant sell-out.

The 15-piece range includes playful slogan jumpers (naturally), embroidered pyjamas, a sequin dress and  – the one we’re already marking as a winter necessity – an oversize sleeping bag puffa jacket.

Creative director and founder Ashish Gupta said he had created “something lazy and a bit dreamy” for RI’s Design Forum, which has previously collaborated with the likes of Sibling, Eudon Choi, Katie Eary and Zoe Jordan.

Slouchy jumper slogans include “sick of all this chic”, “doom and gloom” and “good in bed”, with Gupta, whose “Immigrant” jumper is a cult classic, explaining he wanted the collection to be humorous and easy-wear.

“Something relaxed enough to slouch around the house in, yet stylish enough to be taken out.”

Leisurewear as outerwear? Dreamy.
