RIVER ISLAND x ASHISH
For autumn 2017, River Island’s Design Forum have collaborated with Ashish for a new collection, its first gender-neutral one.
After moving to London from India and completing a masters at Central Saint Martins, Ashish Gupta first showed at LFW in 2005. He then went on to be a three-time New Generation award winner with his perfected combination of sportswear-meets-sequins, which take influence from his background in eastern and western cultures alongside his love for glamour.
The new collection is lazy and dreamy with a brilliant sense of humour, poking fun at the fashion industry and its obsession with the new and on-trend, with slogans like “Good in bed” and “Sick of all this chic”. They are clothes that are comfortable enough to lounge around the house in, yet still cool enough to go out in.
