Competition: All I want for Christmas is a Kipling bag… do you want one?

Posted in Competiton by Nneoma Ulu on November 30, 2009

Do you remember Kipling bags? Those rucksacks that the geeky girls at school had with a little furry monkey keyring hanging off it, that were always red? Well it seems that those geeky days are now gone and Kipling has grown up and had a bit of a makeover at the hands of Isabelle Cheron. Cheron arrived at Kipling in 2006 and there is no doubt that she knows what she is doing, having worked at Celine, Chanel and Cerruti and the results are showing. Kipling is becoming more fashion forward and there is an obvious departure from the children’s rucksacks that it was once famous for. If Kipling isn’t on your radar, it should be.

As Christmas is approaching, Kipling have put together a holiday collection with a selection of their best bags for the festive season, so whether you need something for your Christmas party, New Year’s Eve or even a pressie for your girlfriend, there is no need to look any further.

YOU could be the owner of a fab Kipling clutch (above) from the holiday collection just in time for Christmas. Simply leave a comment on this post by 15th December and this sparkly clutch could be yours. Don’t forget to leave a contact e-mail address so I can get in touch if you win. The competition is open to UK residents only (sorry to my overseas readers) and the winner will be notified by 16th December. Good luck!

    Great blog always an interesting read… I’d love to win that bag it’d make my Xmas as I’m unlikely to get any presents.

    In the words of Mariah – “All I want for Christmas is…… a green sequinned Kipling Clutch” ok, ok, a few too many syllables, but you get the gist! Love the competition and the blog, you are a true fashionista!

    Hi, I bought a Kipling bag today, having seen this yesterday! More of a laptop bag slash handbag… And a make up bag as well. Definitely much cooler than when we at school! Yes, I remember them back then! x

    Just realised I kinda ruled myself out of winning by saying I already bought one! It’s a boring black laptop/handbag though…! x

    Not only is it Christmas, but it’s my wifes birthday on boxing day, our first wedding anniversary on Sunday and she’s just had a baby! It’s a present nightmare. I know she would love this handbag – especially as I screwed up last year and bought her the wrong handbag for Valentines day!

    and as a postscript to my entry above – it’s so her colour too.

    Ooooo this is exactly what I need for christmas! My main pressie will be driving lessons..but to quote a line from Love Actually “I don’t want something I need, I would like something I want..something pretty.” They are gorgeous πŸ™‚

    I’m definitely entering! That bag is quite removed from what I’m imagine from Kipling and I really like it.

    Ta very much – (or via Disco Nap).

    Great blog…….

    I always wanted a Kipling bag when I was at school, and so nice to see that they have grown-up with their fan base. I would be very happy to win an Emerald clutch, ’twill go with my eyes……

      Hope that’s helpful.
