What was the concept behind RI Studio II?
It’s been incredible to be part of the journey of RI Studio. We started concepting a year ago so it’s really exciting to see the second collection hit down in stores. The pieces are trend-lead but timeless and so easy to style together. They make a statement yet are effortless to wear. RI Studio II is all about taking our key wardrobe must-haves into the summer months. Summer tailoring, crisp cotton dresses, oversized shirts, super soft sweats and the season must-have, ecru denim. Colour is so important this season and we wanted to reflect this within the collection, so you’ll find some muted pastels and candy brights amongst the neutrals.
What makes the collection special?
It’s been a pleasure to work with premium fabrics to create this collection and to really focus on the fit.
Can you tell us a bit about the design process?
I like to keep the design process fluid. I’m constantly inspired by everything I see around me so the collection is constantly evolving. As a team we are really intune with one another and always have our RI Studio customer at the forefront of every decision we make.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
For me inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere; shopping, films, exhibitions and travel. It’s important to be always open to inspiration - an idea can strike up at any time. When it does, I love opening it out with my team and exploring where it can take us.
