River Island will launch a plus-size womenswear range called RI Plus next March, which will include pieces in sizes 18 to 24.
The range will include styles from all areas of the retailer’s offer, including core basics, denim, workwear and partywear.
Plus-size model Candice Huffine - who was the first plus-size model to appear on the cover of Vogue Italia - will front the campaign for the new collection.
River Island marketing director Josie Roscop told Vogue: “We’re excited about giving great fashion to more women. We feel this is the right time for the brand to expand our size range offering. Ultimately, it’s about fashion and being inclusive.”
The collection will be available in a selection of top River Island stores and online in March, with retail prices ranging from £6 to £80.
