Each new season brings a fresh lineup of fashion collaborations. Spring/summer 2016 is no exception, with a host of exclusive collaborations between stars -- like Rihanna and Kendall Jenner -- and big-name brands and labels. Here's a look at some of the hottest ready-to-wear and accessories collaborations in store for the spring/summer season.

Uniqlo & Liberty London
The Japanese brand has a long history of collaborations of all kinds. For spring 2016, Uniqlo has teamed up with Liberty London, famous for its iconic patterned fabrics. As part of celebrations marking Liberty's 140th anniversary, some of the English brand's finest floral prints have been brought to around 20 Uniqlo designs, including t-shirts, tank tops, shirts, dresses, pants, shorts, culottes, and a lightweight down jacket, with items for women, men, children and babies. The range is out now in stores and online.

Kendall & Kylie Jenner for Neiman Marcus
The two Jenner siblings have already racked up their fair share of fashion and beauty collections, riding high on their ever-growing fame. But this unmissable collaboration is a serious must-shop, with a capsule collection of chic, high-end pieces designed for Neiman Marcus as part of the label's "#OnlyatNM" program. The collection, which includes a leather jacket and shorts, plus a long dress in a poppy red shade, is available in the luxury label's stores or online at neimanmarcus.com.

Sonia Rykiel & Robert Clergerie
Sonia Rykiel has rebooted one of Robert Clergerie's most iconic designs for the fashion house's pre-autumn/winter 2016-2017 collection. The closed-toe wedge sandals with ankle strap that helped seal the brand's success in the 1980s have been revamped for 2016 in bejeweled, striped and sequined designs. They'll be heading to both brands' stores from June.

Rihanna for Manolo Blahnik
The singer has a long-running love story with fashion, with regular one-off or ongoing brand collaborations. As well as partnering with Puma, the singer has worked with luxury shoe designer Manolo Blahnik for a capsule footwear collection entitled "Denim Desserts." This includes six models, with ankle boots, stilettos and thigh boots, all finished in denim and with embroidery and beading notably inspired by Rihanna's tattoos. This very limited-edition collection goes on sale from May 5 in Manolo Blahnik stores in London, New York and Hong Kong.
