Creative director Bruno Frisoni took inspiration from Central Asia and its bazaars, deploying rich colors and materials including calf hair, Mongolian lamb and metallic leathers. The latter was used on a rendition of the new Virgule2 square-toed booties and Prismic handbags, while sequins, lamé fabrics, silks and diamanté details decorated evening accessories.
Frisoni introduced the Inès bag, a flap-fronted style “with a laid-back attitude,” he said, inspired by Vivier muse Inès de la Fressange. Ornate versions came in embroidered suede or fur.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
