Jourdan Dunn’s Homage to Heritage

Taking a hint from the Jamaican flag, Jourdan Dunn’s 3Baguette is clad in yellow, green and black, reflecting the model’s roots. For an even more personal touch, a discreet quote inspired by Dunn’s tattoo is hidden underneath the bag’s flap: “you owe it to yourself, set the world on fire.” With supple green leather, bright yellow python skin and sultry red sides, this handbag is as fierce as Dunn herself.
