The Many Bags of Rihanna, Part Two

Before we move forward, you should all know that I have become an irrational Rihanna fangirl. Not of her music, necessarily – I don’t own any of her albums – but of Rihanna as a character in the media. I love that she wears (and generally pulls off) outrageous things, I love how well she mixes high fashion and hip hop style, I love that she’s not afraid to wear things that will surely bring her plenty of criticism. In a pop culture landscape full of “managed” personalities, I love that Rihanna’s not bland. Or at least she doesn’t look bland, which is what we’re primarily concerned with here.

We first profiled Rihanna’s handbag collection a little more than a year ago, and in that time, she’s been caught carrying nearly 20 additional bags that are worthy of note. Because of her current world tour, these bags have done more traveling than most people can even imagine, but somehow, Rihanna manages to pull out purse after purse, with a new bag popping up in photos seemingly every few days. Her handbag freight fees alone must be astronomical.

We’ll start where Rihanna has been starting lately: with Chanel. She carried this Chanel Vanity Case from Resort 2014 to the brand’s recent couture show in Paris and spent most of the time using it to shield her crotch from cameras. Oh, Rihanna. Shop pre-owned and vintage Chanel via Portero.

This full Chanel look, complete with a Chanel Metallic Quilted Backpack, is a little more conservative.

Rihanna’s clearly one of Karl Lagerfeld’s favorites lately – just check out that $10k Chanel Lego Clutch. With her presence at the brand’s show and her wardrobe suddenly full of Chanel, might a campaign be far behind? That’s usually how these things progress with Karl.

I have suspicions that this Chanel Quilted Shoulder Bag might be vintage.

Even before Karl Lagerfeld seemed like he was in love with RiRi, she carried the brand – here’s Rihanna with a Chanel Logo Tote in her home country of Barbados.

Even though this Juliette Jake Wrap Around Clutch isn’t Chanel, Rihanna’s still got the brand represented in her outfit. Pick up one of your own via JulietteJake.com.

One of my favorite things about Rihanna is how quickly and easily her look can change. For example, she looks like a member of TLC during the 90s with this JOYRICH Faux Python Backpack.

On the other hand, she looks totally professional and put-together with this Dolce & Gabbana Miss Dolce Top Handle Bag. Shop Dolce & Gabbana via Luisa Via Roma.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-2

Mostly, Rihanna’s in the middle, like with this Givenchy Antigona Madone Clutch. (We think it might be the one that comes with the tote.)

The basis of my theory about the smaller Givenchy clutch is that Rihanna also has the big Givenchy Antigona Madone Tote. Get a similar version for $1,095, clutch included, via Bergdorf Goodman.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-3

To round out her recent Givenchy pieces, Rihanna also has a baby pink Givenchy Lucrezia Satchel. Pick up a blue version for $2,140 via Bergdorf Goodman.

Black and white is a huge trend right now, so naturally, Rihanna is on it with an all-black outfit and a white Prada Mini Saffiano Lux Tote Bag. Pick up a taupe version for $1,650 via Neiman Marcus.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-4

Sometimes, admittedly, Rihanna’s outfits don’t make all that much sense, like this crop-top sweatshirt and her Gucci USA Flag Collection Boston Bag. Shop Gucci via the brand’s official site.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-5

Other times, the outfit makes perfect sense, like the hologram sequin top she paired with this Stella McCartney Holographic Clutch. Shop Stella McCartney via Net-a-Porter.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-17

In an Adidas sweatshirt and Pierre Hardy Leopard Suede Backpack, Rihanna looks a bit like an ultra-chic college coed. Shop Pierre Hardy via Net-a-Porter.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-9

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Rihanna carries her fair share of Alexander Wang – his mix of high fashion and streetwear fits her style perfectly. We caught her carrying a pebble-textured Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel last time around, and now she has the smooth leather version as well. Pick up a black Rocco of your own for $895 via Neiman Marcus.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-6

That’s a little Alexander Wang Pelican Sling Snakeskin Crossbody Bag, I do believe. Shop Alexander Wang via ShopBop.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-8

We’ve documented just how much Rihanna loves her Celine Trio Roll Clutch in the past, but it’s worth reiterating. Shop pre-owned Celine via Portero.

The Many Bags of Rihanna Part 2-13

We’re rounding out this roundup with an unknown – is this another Celine clutch? Something different? With the simple shape and natural python material, it’s hard to say. Check out that skin-tight velvet Alaia bodysuit, though.

Not getting this – she looks bad pretty much everywhere. Of course, you want to call this “style”…

You want to state your opinion as fact-lol! You obviously don’t like her by your comment but Rihanna pulls of nearly every look she tries out.

I don’t know her personally to like or dislike her. I do not like the way she “pulls off” her outfits and that is an opinion. Obviously, you are trying to see more in my comment than there is.

I think style is in the eye of the beholder……. it may not be style to you but it doesn’t make it bad. JMO

To Amanda, you really should download her music, her albums are fun.

Some of the pics. were not my favorites, neither are the bags. I only coveted that Chanel yellow Lego(?). The first bags of Riri had more of my style. I do agree with Amanda, she is fierce in her style choices, which is refreshing.

Oh, I also love to see what she’s wearing … she’s got the confidence to pull anything off (having a killer body does help)

Queen of the Flying Fish can do NO WRONG in my eyes…. style wise. While it may not be for most it looks FAB on her! The bags are just has varied as her style & I enjoy some of her music but ALL of her fashion sense!
