Though many high street brands have injected some vintage inspiration into individual pieces of late, it's River Island that's ahead of the pack with their Chelsea Girl range. Taking on the name and image of River Island circa 1965, we loved some of their 2010 items, and the relaunched 2011 fare looks set to impress.
Taking inspiration from the brand's own archive designs, the line offers 60s, 70s and 80s looks with a sprinkling of modern cut and fabric choice. From the original UK fashion chain, expect easy to wear pieces that are unmistakeably retro. Shown above are two of their sixties looks, paving the way for some impressive looks at high street prices.
The line launches in River Island stores and online on the 24th of March, with Selfridges planning an exclusive pop-up shop too.
