River Island

The launch of a store that my girls have long been waiting for finally opened! RIVER ISLAND welcomed its guests quietly & without any fanfare last November 30 in SM Aura, but fans of the UK brand still flocked on its first day.


Opening Day:

Every time we would visit Aura, they would wish that River Island would hurry up & open already. Their wish finally came true as it opened its door to the public that saturday! m/

But then again it’s YET ANOTHER STORE on their shopping list. FML! ;P

River Island also has a men’s section.

With over 60 years of fashion retailing experience, River Island is one of the most successful companies on the High Street. River Island has nearly 300 stores across the UK, Ireland and internationally throughout Asia, the Middle East and Europe.

River Island is known for its stylish and affordable fashion known for their great going-out looks, amazing denim and fabulous shoes and bags, as well as being the perfect place to pick up everything you could ever need to get a complete head-to-toe look.

To welcome its Filipino clientele, River Island gave a 25% discount on its opening day. And fashion bloggers were invited to shop its high end merchandise.

Who was really so nice & amiable to let us take multiple photo sesh even though she was shopping! :)

DJ Nix, a.k.a Nix Damn P in the house!

Uuuuuuyyy akala niyo hip ako at kilala ko siya noh. Ginoogle ko lang hello! :P


The girls went semi-crazy. But then again, what’s new?! :P I wonder where they will wear all those clothes when they have UNIFORMS! @_@ Underneath maybe???

They gave free Bono Gelato for a minimum purchase of 3k single receipt.

and this nice cosmetic pouch for every 5k single receipt.

Robinsons Specialty Stores, Inc. (RSSI) is the exclusive franchisee of River Island in the Philippines. After the opening of the first branch in SM Aura, River Island is set to open another branch in Glorietta 5, which will carry the River Island x Rihanna Collection.
