Rihanna debuted her River Island clothing line at London Fashion Week over the weekend to mixed reactions. Not only was the singer reportedly an hour late to the show, but the clothes modeled down the runway weren't that impressive. The Huffington Post called the collection "a little too heavy on the '90s vibe."

Big hoop earrings, gold body chains, crop tops, printed trousers, monochromatic stripes, high slits and lips glossed in MAC Ruby Roo dressed models for Saturday night's show, making it a collection of simple but colorful separates.

The Telegraph called the show "anti-climactic" due to a lack of a Rihanna performance (models strutted to the singer's "Fresh Off the Runway"), but said, "This offering carried the Bajan's style DNA through and through."

The Spring/Summer Collection will hit stores March 5 and an ad campaign featuring Jourdan Dunn, Charlotte Free, Tao Okamoto, Ataui Deng and Bambi Northwood Blyth has just been released, but Rihanna already has her sights on Autumn/Winter 2013. The singer told The Telegraph that the next River Island collection will have "a whole different flip" on her latest creation.
