Kipling Fall - Winter 2018 Collection

Kipling Fall - Winter 2018 Collection

Establish stylish functionality through iconic products

Stylish, iconic and functional, the Fall Winter Collection redefines authenticity with themes of Newstalgia, offering a modern take on Kipling classics.

Old School Revival

90’s brand revival forms the basis of the design inspiration for Fall Winter 18 drawing reference to old school streetwear brands from a defining fashion era. Graphic logos and oversized branding add pre-millennial nostalgia to heritage shapes sourced from the Kipling archives. The season also references Kipling’s beginnings in 1987, embodying a young, carefree aesthetic revived in the ‘New Classics’ collection.  Backpack styles delivered in bold primary colours compliment lightweight duffle bags in pastel variations, the perfect partner for the ‘Art of Exploring.’

Fashion and Function

Alongside the ‘New Classics,’ Kipling’s signature style, the ART M, has been reworked and updated. Taking inspiration from oversized shopper totes to deliver hidden depths of functionality. A bright injection of colour on the interior allows belongings to be found at ease with three individual pockets promoting ‘The Art of Busy’. A bag for the active working woman is born. Technology needs are fulfilled with a laptop and iPad sleeve, a mobile phone holder and two extra pouches for cables. Everyday necessities have been considered and delivered with three elasticated pockets for multiple uses, penholders, a water bottle holder, umbrella pocket and removable pouches. Black and taupe form the basis of the colour journey which are elevated from your usual everyday bag by the use of metallic.

Time to Shimmer and Shine

As the season reaches its crescendo, ‘The Art of Gifting’ delivers something special with a nod to the festive period. Sparkle and silver excites festivities with shimmer and shine. Metallic pouches provide gifting options in blush pinks while larger bags in glossy blacks are the perfect companion for holiday season vacations. Fun fluffy keyrings keep accessories playful whilst maintaining a level of sophistication with modern retro geo prints.

How did it all start?

Our tale is one of great passion and creativity (plus the odd stroke of luck!) that goes back to the spring of '87. That was the year when three young designers pals in Antwerp stumbled upon a happy accident on a loom and discoverd crinkled nylon fabric... and voila, the idea for Kipling was born. Having hit upon a winning formula they wasted no time in creating the affordable, sporty and functional bags and lifestyle essentials that have gone on to become wardrobe favourites for women in 65 countries across the world.
