Men: River Island GFW Collection
You don't need a degree in fashion to recognise that preppy varsity cardigans, roll-leg chinos and Coldplay-style military jackets are a little more directional than your typical High Street fare. As part of its six year-long sponsorship of Graduate Fashion Week, River Island is releasing a line designed by former GFW students who impressed enough that they have since become employees. The limited-edition postgrad pieces will be available in 40 River Island stores and online from the end of May. GQ particularly likes the driving shoes - there's nothing like putting your foot down in Lamborghini-yellow treads.
What a wonderful opportunity for the graduates, and as you can see, they are certainly taking command of their abilities and turning out some great pieces......I would love to have that military jacket!
