Celebrity bag spotting: Rihanna with the JT Italia HB Satchel

Rihanna handbag - red JT Italia HB Satchel
My boyfriend has a celebrity crush on Rihanna so I secretly despise her. But I have to admit, I really love her style. The edgy haircut, B-girl fashion and trendy accessories make her a true modern fashionista. She was recently spotted at the airport looking cute from head to toe, of course, but it was her haute red handbag that really caught my eye. I covered Rihanna’s handbags before but this one was a new one I’d never seen. After a bit of research, I discovered the bag in question was the

There’s a lot going on with this bag but it’s simply stunning. There’s draping, pleating, and leather wrapped around the handle. The bag is made completely by hand which makes it even more amazing, and consists of contrasting leather and buffalo skins. It’s pricey (I mean c’mon, would Rihanna carry a cheap bag?) – $3,400, but it’s one of those rare bags that’s incredibly well made, the perfect balance between classic and trendy, and offers celebrity style. In short, it’s the perfect bag!

Here’s some background on the designers from LuxCouture:

After 14 years of working for household names like Giorgio Armani, Calvin Klein and Donna Karan, as well as several top emerging talents, Jeff Parker and Tony Ta launched their handbag line JT (a combination of their first initials). Made in Italy using the finest materials, artisans and producers, and owing to the designers’ constant attention and continuous quest to harness old-world craftsmanship, JT bags raise the bar and redefine luxury. Driven by their instinctive passion for things inherently chic and sophisticated, the designers’ sight as inspiration their love of everything from dark chocolate and Gewürztraminer from the Alto Adige, Florence, to Caravaggio paintings and Brancusi sculptures, to all things “horsey”, vintage glass and the look of old alligator bags. It is easy to see how their designs reflect this depth of sophisticated sensibilities, as well as have a charming nostalgic aura to them. Yet, it’s the unique way they translate these beloved inspirations into bag-form – each design is exceptionally unique and cutting-edge – that makes us marvel at the designers’ brilliance.
