Pride Month may be over as we say goodbye to June and are now speeding through July, but high street brand River Island have just launched their 2021 Pride collection and it’s honestly iconic.

For this year’s range, the brand has teamed up with talented author and illustrator Dom&Ink on a fabulous four-piece collection and we want it all.

You might have seen Dom’s illustrations making their rounds on social media by working with the likes of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK and Little Mix on amazing artwork.

Before we get into the collection, one of the main things we love about this is that 30 per cent of profits will be donated to UK Black Pride.

UK Black Pride is a brilliant charity that promotes and stands for the rights of LGBTQI+ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Latin American and Middle Eastern-descent.

The range comprises of two t-shirts, a hoodie and a tote bag (because who doesn’t love a tote bag) which feature slogans such as “You’re an icon” and “I See You”.

Dom made sure to include his incredible illustration style on them so there is literally nothing to not like about them.
