International brand Kipling are renowned for their trendy yet practical bags, purses and luggage, this season sees a welcome injection of fashion inspired styles. The favourite crinkle nylon finished bags are still very apparent but have evolved into new shapes, the oversized duck egg blue bag is finished in a fleece trim perfect for winter styling.
The brands staple monkey mascot that adorns each bag has also evolved and is presented in a matching style to each bag. Purses and make-up bags are printed in bold, block typography with humorous slogans, again finished in crinkled nylon.
The addition of new fabrics to the collection sees the incorporation of patent or leather panelling updating the styles and keeping them current. Block colour leather is presented in teal and blue, the style is having a retail moment and is now showing longevity into autumn/winter 12.
