In the process of putting together her 7th album Unapologetic in 2012, Rihanna was spotted at Hotel Montage and in route to the studio. Let’s take a look at what she wore:
Rihanna sported a quite casual look on this occasion. She paired a New York graphic tee tied to show off her mid-drift with a leather jacket. This Leather Jacket with Knitted Insert was designed by DSquared². It is currently sold out, but was available on Circle Menswear for £1,046 (approx. 1,580.72 US). Rihanna also wore a pair of overall sweatpants that featured plaid fabric on the inside.
Rihanna revealed to us that the pants were purchased in Japan, much like the camouflage jacket she wore during her shoot for her Unapologetic Album booklet we covered (here). She rounded off her look with High Top Chuck Taylor sneakers from Converse and her Vintage Oval Leather Quilted 2.55 bag from Chanel.
This jacket was featured in the brand’s Autumn/Winter Collection in 2010. Friend and mentor, Jay-Z wore this same leather bomber in June of 2010 when making an appearance on Letterman (here). Sean “Diddy” Combs wore the jacket also in 2010, just three months after Jay, when leaving his hotel in London (here).
A better view of Rihanna’s DSquared² Leather Jacket:
This leather jacket from DSquared² has all the trademark features, a chunky silver zip with the large runner embossed with the DSquared² logo, just like the silver poppers. There is the large zip and two breast pockets each fastened with a chunky zip, each cuff also a zip and popper fastening. You can currently shop DSquared²’s Men’s Spring/Summer 2013 Collection of coats and jackets (here).
