River Island: Chelsea Girl

River Island has been around for over 70 years and has had a few name changes along the way. Founded by Bernard Lewis in 1948, River Island was originally under the title ‘Lewis Separates’. The company became extremely influential in the 1960s fashion scene and in 1975, it already had 70 stores in the UK. Following this success, they rebranded under the name ‘Chelsea Girl’. After more success in the 1980s with menswear which the Lewis family called ‘Concept Man’, the two stores were joined together in the same store, and the first River Island store was launched in 1988.

Today, River Island is still well known for its Chelsea Girl branding and collection. The Chelsea Girl stores and style were heavily involved and influential to the mini dress trend in the 1960s and after the rebranding to River Island, the Chelsea Girl name was recently revived in 2011. The Chelsea Girl capsule collection focused on retro styles and was refreshed again in 2022 to focus on a new and younger generation of girls.

So, what can you find from the River Island Chelsea Girl collection today? Still staying true to its 60s origins, the Chelsea Girl edit is a combination of retro and modern clothing and accessories. Shoppers can find strong and colourful patterns and crochet, fringe and sequin materials, all with 60s-esque style in modern silhouettes like mom jeans and bandeau tops. It’s a fun and vibrant collection that demands attention so if you’re a fan of the River Island brand, the Chelsea Girl edit is the one for you.
