Kipling Turns 25 + Launches Global Art Project, “Play with Bags”

Kipling 'Play with Bags'

Global accessories brand, Kipling celebrated it’s 25th birthday at Helen Mills in NYC last week and took opportunity to launch their global art project, “Play With Bags”. Showcasing 8 artists from around the world, they handpicked former French fashion stylist Vincent Gapaillard, UK Photographer, Rankin, Belgian photographer Alex Salinas, Sarah Illenberger of Germany, Javier Mariscal of Spain, Li Wei of China, and Prince Lauder of Mexico. The artists were given the simple instruction to ‘Play with Bags’ using the Kipling “Classics Collection”, a small collection of modernized re-editions of classic Kipling styles in shades of tangerine and electric blue to create their works.

The birthday party featured all the works of the artist in a gallery set up and had a giant birthday card for guests to sign. There’s something so super 90s about Kipling, that it’s a good thing the 90s are coming back! While I’m not big on mini-backbacks (in general), I’m loving their tangerine duffle bags!
