I went to see Rihanna in concert ths weekend and though I’m still not sold on the red hair, I gotta admit the girl’s got style. She was spotted out in NYC last week when she was scheduled to perform at MSG and she accessorized her bright red crop with a new neck tattoo that read “Rebelle Fleur,” a menswear-inspired pantsuit, Miu Miu studded oxford brogues and the haute Guardian Angel bag by Vlieger & Vandam.
This leather bag was inspired by designers Hein van Dam and Carolien Vlieger and was the first in a series of striking bags. Due to the growing rates of crime and violence and people’s increased perceptions and fears, the designers wanted to give people the impression of feeling secure, arming them with a ‘Guardian Angel’ handbag.
What do you think of this gun-impressioned bag? Would you carry it? We think it’s pretty haute – though trying to carry it on a NYC subway could prove troublesome!
