A sense of nostalgia is in the air with River Island's new collection

And now you can capture the adventurous spirit with River Island’s Autumn/Winter 2015 collection and embrace the trend that is taking us all back to this free-spirited time in history.


With its own unique contemporary twist, River Island has released its new AW/15 campaign, combining elements of these influential eras in order to create a new, bold and sophisticated collection.
