Bold colours and bright prints are the mainstay of Kipling’s Summer/Pre-Fall Collection 2016, which was launched recently in KL to much fanfare. They even had a whole double decker bus decorated with monkey shapes, while the inside was transformed into a mini showroom!

The jungle-y theme is in line with their sporty and fun brand identity. Founded in Belgium in 1987, it was named after Rudyard Kipling, the author of the Jungle Book.

The collection on showcase was not limited to just one type : there were knapsacks, sling bags, shoulder bags, pouches, and even trolley bags for travelling! 🙂

I love this classy black palette, with a touch of white. Would gladly add them to my wardrobe! 🙂

Classy and stylish enough for work, but also sturdy enough to bring around.

The Kipling Summer bus will be heading around town this whole month of June, so if you spot it, try counting the nuber of monkeys on the bus and stand a chance to win bags!
