Popular British retailer River Island is the latest brand to jump on the plus-size bandwagon. As British Vogue reported, the chain is set to launch RI Plus, a collection that will feature sizes 18 to 24. River Island has appointed Candice Huffine—who, as British Vogue noted, was the first plus-size model to nab a spot in the Pirelli calendar—as the face of the upcoming collection. Pieces will launch in-store and online in March 2016.
"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," River Island marketing director Josie Roscop told British Vogue. "Ultimately, it's about fashion and being inclusive." Who can argue with that?
