Kipling celebrates its 30th anniversary

For the ‘bagaholic’ mom                                

Belgian brand Kipling celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. Lightweight and functional as well as fashionable, feminine, and effortless to maintain, Kipling bags feature unexpected details, colors that make you happy and a playful Kipling monkey that makes everyone smile.

A truly international brand, Kipling is now sold in over 60 countries around the world and is part of the lives of more than 35 million women. The journey began in the spring of 1987 in Antwerp, Belgium’s fashion and design capital, when three passionate and enterprising men - Paul Van De Velde, Vincent Haverbeke and Xavier Kegels, decided to try their hand at shaking up the handbag world.

From there came the search for a name. Familiar with the tales of the well-travelled author Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book and the movie Out of Africa, that perfectly represented the fun and adventure associated with the spirit of the brand.

To ensure that a playful spirit always shone through, the loveable furry monkey figure that accompanies each Kipling piece was born. Each season up to 80 unique monkeys in different colors are released, and each collection has its very own unique monkey named after a Kipling employee somewhere in the world, making each one a covetable collectible.

The crinkled nylon was created in the same year. It was a happy accident that during the dying process the materials overheated, leaving the nylon used in their design crinkled. Deciding to embrace the error, this textural effect has become a signature of Kipling’s handbag designs and has been used in the functional and durable bags ever since.

In 30 years, Kipling has arguably become Belgium’s most successful fashion export. In the last decade alone it has collaborated on special collections with young designers from around the world. The brand continues to innovate and produce functional accessories that are of a high quality yet modern and fun.

First conceived in 1988 and reborn in 2017 the Art M has always been the ideal travel companion thanks to its effortless blend of style and function. The versatile bag features a range of pockets as well as zippers so that it can be changed from a rectangular-shaped bag into a triangular-shaped one, and with no lining it can fold easily into other luggage.

The Art M is part of this year’s spring 2017 collection, including the Defea, another favorite design for consumers across Asia. This perfect bag is available in a dynamic Dream Garden bright floral and leafy print exclusively for the Asian market and for the 30th anniversary, it offers a free 30th Year Monkey in Pink Frost until May 30 only.
