I love how much fun these bags by Barbara Rihl are, which she affectionately refers to as ‘happy travel companions’. Made of precious Italian leather, each one has its own name + its own distinct witty detail.
’Carine In Rome‘ (above) is a crossover bag in pink grained leather with fun faux details including pockets + travel patches, embossed on the front.
‘Grace In Havana‘ looks like a humorous homage to an Hermès‘ Kelly bag. Their names alone are funny as the Grace + Kelly in question, are both the same woman. Made of burgundy python embossed leather, with two crossed straps in the same skin, the front printed patches on the purse pushes this bag’s irony a little further.
‘Your High Heels‘ is a black leather tote bag with a front embossed pattern that reads ‘Don’t Forget To Wear Your Highest Heels’ on a badge of sorts, with ash brown handles. It’s cool how the words are not all the same size.
‘When In Doubt Wear Red‘ is a red leather duo pouch with a front embossed pattern in black that reads ‘WHEN IN DOUBT WEAR RED’, in a very simple font. With black front + back exterior zippered pockets + a black removable + adjustable shoulder strap, makes this bag pop with graphic detail. I love the top handle on this little number.
