The latest round of designs also features a greater number of casual items, with printed t-shirts, raglan sweatshirts, loop and brushback joggers and zip-front hoodies.
Details include boucle logos, bold prints, jacquard linings and contrasting and real leather pockets.
According to Holloway Road designer Melanie Szmolenski, the AW14 collection is more refined than previous seasons with “cleaner fabrications and a strong considered direction”.
“Our attention is focused on sourcing premium fabrics and developing the perfect new shapes,” she added.
River Island Holloway Road debuted in 2012, named after the location of the brand’s first ever shop opened by founder Bernard Lewis in 1948.
The AW14 collection maintains its usual September release date, both in store and online. Price points will sit between £22 and £128 for individual items.
