River Island, 9 Southgate Place

This great store ticks the right trend boxes with its own unique take on spring 11 essentials.

Product 8

River Island comes second only to Topshop in the trend stakes for the younger shopper, delivering a strong spring 11 collection peppered with its distinctive handwriting. A gorgeous flared orange skirt covers both the silhouette and colour trend for the season, while cute denim dungarees offer a bolder interpretation of the denim trend. 1970s-inspired batwing sleeves are bigger here than anywhere else, lace dresses look good and there are great maxi dresses and skirts to choose from.

Experience 8
River Island’s signature interior is evident, with different wallpaper or brickwork used for each trend or story. The changing rooms are super-cool, with doors resembling real front doors. The store manages to be well-segmented, tidy and buzzing. Staff were on hand to help too.

Value 8
River Island beats Topshop on price, with few items topping £50. Tunics start from £24.99, maxi skirts from £34.99 and the flared orange skirt is great value at £29.99. High-waisted, wide-leg jeans are £44.99, while other jeans come in at £39.99. T-shirts are £9.99 and vests £6.99.
