The Eudon Choi for River Island shop is open! And aren’t the look book pictures fab?

The capsule collection is part of River Island’s Design Forum which gives emerging designers a platform to reach more consumers at an affordable price.

But the biker-detailed utility jacket (£150) and leather-panelled coat (£200) are probably your best bet for cost-per-wear versatility.
