Why did you want to collaborate with RI?
I’ve always been a River Island fan. One of my favourite outfits from last year’s series was an RI dress that I wore on Aftersun, the reaction to it was incredible. I love the fit and style and so I approached the team and asked if I could create my own collection. I was over the moon when they said YES.
Who are your ultimate style icons?
My whole RI collection is 70s inspired. So, I’d say Kirsten Dunst in The Virgin Suicides. Or, Kate Hudson in Almost Famous.
What’s the vibe of the collection?
With it being a summer collection, it’s obviously inspired by the sunshine and falling in love. It’s bright, practical and the perfect capsule range for a holiday. Any friends that I’ve secretly shown the collection to have told me it’s totally me, it’s like I’m walking into my own wardrobe!
Which piece is 100% your type on paper?
I’ve always wanted a blue Hawaiian shirt but have always had to buy a men’s version which never fits properly. So, to have been able to design my own which fits in all the right places has been a dream come true.
