International luggage and lifestyle brand, Kipling has paired with renowned, global icon, Helena Christensen for an exciting, new collection: Helena Christensen for Kipling ...
Kipling prides themselves on doing collaborations that are the perfect fit and Helena is no exception. With her diverse lifestyle juggling family life, her supermodel and photography work and goodwill, Helena ties in well with Kipling's passion, creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.
"Kipling is a brand that I have used for so many years; it's a part of my travel. Working with the design team has been a great eye-opener, understanding and appreciate all of the elements to consider in order to make a bag durable and long lasting whilst having true credentials in style and being fashion led." said Helena.
Helena’s Kipling collection is inspired by her life and captured through her eyes; from a snapshot taken of a pink rose in spring or the leather of an antique chair. The medium rose bag is the focus of the collection, with the elegant photo-print design taken from one of her personal favourite shots.
The vintage feel and dusky pink shade represent Helena’s passion for capturing unique beauty, whilst the trademark Kipling structure ensures a tote that is as timelessly practical as it is striking. The collection also includes designs that show Helena’s feel for vintage fabrics with touches of lace print alongside classic tan leather.
The Helena Christensen for Kipling Collection will be available in South Africa in October 2013.
