If the point of a celebrity fashion line is to download his or her personal style for a mass audience, then Rihanna’s collaboration with River Island was a success.

The looks were all variations on things from her wardrobe, ranging from the fleshy — tight crop tops and long skirts slit to high heaven — to the streetwise and boyish, as in hooded jumpsuits, to the bare and Barbadian-influenced look of floral prints shown on bra tops and shorts.

None of it looked expensive, but if Rihanna’s see-if-I-care attitude is a free gift with purchase, the collection should do fine.

This high street collection for spring-summer 2013 is set to hit River Island stores on March 5.
