Technical finishings and details emphasise the military reference with patch pockets, chrome zippers, poppers, and internal shoulder straps.

Miller said about the collection: “The Design Forum collection is based on my private military archive so the opportunity to re-issue these pieces has been a creative journey that is particularly personal to me. We worked closely with the River Island design team; taking inspiration from museums and rummaging through vintage showrooms we strived to created a collection that not only draws upon my core design aesthetic, but appeals to the River Island man”.RIVER ISLAND X MATTHEW MILLER2

The range will be showcased in a short film to be shown at London Fashion Week Men’s in June 2017.

Pieces will be priced from £25 to £110 and will be available from River Island stores nationwide and from June.RIVER ISLAND X MATTHEW MILLER1
