Hermès Jacket-Dress

Rianna says: ‘I really love this print - Hermès is the master of print. I could wear this jacket-dress to a summer party in Monaco, or Capri with high heels and short silk pants, or to a chic restaurant with my boyfriend. Everybody would look at me and would wonder where I got it.’
