Published January 29, 2013

Rihanna recently gave a sneak peek of her Spring/Summer capsule collection with River Island and shared the inspiration behind the fashion line.

"My style is inspired by my mood, so this collection will have a range of different moods and attitudes and I'm assuming my fans will be the same way," the singer shares with Grazia magazine. "The collection is casual and chic and flirty. I want girls to really want to wear the pieces and feel comfortable, but still feel edgy and I wanted the character to come out in the clothes."

Rih Rih also explained how she's been wanting to design a line to create styles for "sassy" young women like herself ever since she started following fashion.

"I've wanted to design my own fashion line for a very long time. This is something I've wanted to do ever since I started loving fashion. I got passionate about it and every time I saw something on a rack there would be something I'd want to do to it to change it. So I felt like the only way I could do that would be to design the perfect thing for me. This is my way of doing that – teaming up with River Island and designing clothes for young women with young, sassy personalities."

We can't wait to see what else the collection contains when her line debuts at London Fashion Week in February. Are you excited for Rihanna's River Island line? Check out Rihanna's video interview below.
