Wellington, Feb 19: Rihanna certainly made quite a buzz in the style stakes at the Grammys, but her new line has received quite a bashing from critics.
Her first ready-to-wear collection for high street brand River Island (which delivers to New Zealand) at A/W 13 London Fashion Week has divided critics, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Tom Sykes from 'The Daily Beast' sees the clothes as "hideous without an ounce of panache", while 'MTV Style's' Chrissy Mahlmeister is "totally on-board with her comfy girly-yet-grunge pieces".
Meanwhile, 'Elle's' fashion director, Anne-Marie Curtis has, perplexingly, dubbed the collection "an ode to all things high fashion", adding that it is "Eighties Norma Kamali meets Alexander Wang luxe sportswear."
Maybe the 'haters' were just angry that the pop princess had made them wait an hour for her nine minute fashion show - a logistical nightmare at LFW, where there are over a dozen shows a day.
The sillouhettes are said to be cheap, the cuts uninspired and many of the items unwearable. (ANI)
