Rihanna saw the silver lining while returning home to Barbados in a white dress and decadent Dior accessories. As a Dior muse, it's no wonder the singer has all of the latest gear. Riri is seen toting around a limited addition Marc Quinn collaboration bag.
Marc Quinn, British artist, created a 10 piece line to mark the opening of the new London Dior location. Unfortunately, this also means they are limited edition and unavailable online, but check right for other styles!
This gorgeous bag may be little, but it packs a big punch! The orchid motif is masterfully embossed onto the silver leather frame of the petite bag. We would love to carry our essentials in this tiny tote for a night out!
