Admittedly I’ve never really been a River Island kind of girl. The embellishment, diamante’s and slogans wasn’t really my thing over the age of 15. But seeing their new festive collection, I think I’m starting to be converted. Chic camel coats, seventies-style shifts and gorgeous pops of prints and colour have seduced me well and truly. Although there’s the mandatory piece of sparkle, it comes in the form of over-sized necklaces and bibs that are perfect for the party season.
