With a lot of buzz around Rihanna’s natural hair, the fenty hair founder braced the heat in a vintage John Galliano mink fur coat in New York City. She paired it with a light gray crop top, black bra, black parachute pants, and nude stilettos with transparent straps.


However, all attention was on on Rih’s handbag—a graffitied version of Louis Vuitton’s signature Alma bag. A little fashion history—in 2001, Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse’s collaborated on graffiti prints for spring/summer 2001 collection. Sprouse’s iconic prints, known for their decadent and punky aesthetic, had captivated the fashion world in 1984. However, despite his initial success, Sprouse’s business model ultimately proved unsustainable. As a result, his work gradually faded into obscurity by the time Jacobs assumed the helm at Louis Vuitton in 1997.

In 2009, Jacobs teamed up with the late artist once more, honoring Sprouse with a collection featuring stunning, colorful roses. Inspired by a delicate rose sketch meticulously crafted by Sprouse during their first creative partnership, the collection was not just a mere fashion line, but a heartfelt homage to the visionary designer who tragically lost his battle with cancer in 2004. Each piece in the collection bore the essence of his artistic spirit, capturing the essence of his innovative designs and unparalleled talent.

Being an avid collector herself, Rih now joins the likes of Paris, Kim Kardashian, Kelis who own a Louis Vuitton X Stephen Sprouse bag.
