Kipling does know how to make me happy. A new Kipling store has opened in SM Mall of Asia with a big sale event and introduction of the newest Kipling x Alexandra Levasseur and Fall Collection.
We know Kipling as a brand that carries (too) colorful yet functional and durable bags perfect for everyday use and travel escapades. For those who love minimalist and sleek design, you will fall in love with the Kipling Fall Collection 2016.
I love the stylish, functional collection of sleek bags that is perfect for every occasion – more importantly, easy to pair with any ensembles. The bags are waterproof, lightweight, have multiple compartments and zippers, secure fasteners, and don’t forget the signature Monkey key chain.
I can see myself owning one. A perfect collection for any professional women balancing their work and home life. With rich and luxurious coloured designs and an added key feature of padded shoulder straps, this collection offers lightweight and diverse styles that help ease the load off any one’s shoulders while allowing easy pairing of outfits throughout the work week.
Basic Plus Capsule Collection
I instantly fell in love with the collection’s color – Berry hues and a rich palette of fierce Red and elderberry or autumnal pops of Plum and Yellow. Each bag is a statement to (my favorite) black ensemble.
A new addition to Kipling’s vast product offering is the Faye Fever bag, a chic embossed and printed nylon designed and created by heated embossed rollers, giving the range a unique 3D look that comes in warm fall hues as well as stunning gradient pink, which makes it wearable for all occasions.
I really love how simple this bag is – spacious and sturdy that would allow me to bring my laptop anywhere I go.
I instantly fell in love with this bag because it is a cross-body bag which can be worn as sling bag. The color is a classic grey and black and the silver Monkey key fob adds sophistication in it.
Basic Plus Collection
Kipling does not forge simple, casual and functional accessories. Bright seasonal shades adorn new key pieces such as the Elysia Bag in Berry, which is a fresh style modified from Orelie, Kipling’s best-selling handbag. Also available is the Syroin Plum Purple, providing essential spacious compartments to organize every day essentials, while the Brownie Purse in Berry allows carrying around valuables in a compact yet stylish wallet. Completing the range is the stunning Korea Dot Print, a new print for Kipling Asia. This new color accentuates Kipling’s classic DefeaS bag and is sure to put the new collection with smiles on everyone’s faces.
City Capsule Collection
Originally designed for fun day trips, I still see the City Capsule Collection as something sleek and sophisticated. The extensive line utilizes new woven and cracked metal style fabrics that are full of personality and flair.
The interesting design can be seen in Bagtrack backpack. It is casual and functional that can be also carried by hand. The Sophronia in Plum Metal, a small shoulder bag with an array of well-designed compartments is another favorite as it is perfect for day trips and stroll around the mall. For traveling in style, the Luxestagious in Diamond Black by Alexandra Levasseur is a new large A4-fitting shoulder bag with leather handles. It looks sturdy, spacious and stylish that you wouldn’t mind carrying it around during long travels.
Kipling x Alexandra Levasseur
Canadian painter and illustrator Alexandra Levasseur, shared her artwork and creation as backdrop in the newest Kipling Alex in Bloom Collection. Alex whose works have been featured in international magazines and festivals, as well as exhibited in prestigious museums and galleries. One of Alexandra Levasseur’s career highlight was her series of illustrations for SHOW studio during Fashion Week in Milan where she created artwork pieces that represented her interpretation of famous Italian designers such as Prada, Gucci and Versace.
The Kipling x Alexandra Levasseur Collection is a play of Diamond Blacks, Vibrant Reds and Jazzy Blues to Kipling’s usually vibrant styles. Each piece features steely toned blooms and winter florals. The print highlights elements of Kipling’s trademark monkey and Alexandra Levasseur’s signature mishmash design, evoking memories of the Fall Season. I instantly fell in love with the Backpack.
