Best handbags that look like art

 | By  |  1 comment

Rihanna knows it, it's all about the statement handbag that looks like a work of art.

Chic, understated handbags may be just the thing for autumn/winter, but this season it's all quirky bags.

The latest craze, championed by Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, is handbags that look like paintings. Or anything remotely arty.

Who needs a museum when you have art quite literally at your fingertips?

The Self Portrait handbag


Lulu Guinness' latest project is a handbag inspired by Mexican painter Frida Kahlo de Rivera, known for her self-portraits. We want one, and not just because it's a mini straw basket.

The designer handbag


If you've got some cash to splash, Rihanna's new favourite handbag, the Prada Hobo, is the way forward. We love the pastel colour and the delicate painting, nowhere near as garish as Kim K's arty Birkin. What were you thinking Kanye? (£1,800, Prada)

What better way to remember your Italian seaside holiday than with Kate Spade's Via Limoni tourist tote ($348, Kate Spade)

The fashion illustration bag


We love how Moschino's blue mini charming cross body bag reminds of our first handbag as a teenager, but way cooler (£120, House of Fraser)
