Kipling x Silver Spoon Attire
Today I headed down to Selfridges to meet with the lovely people from Kipling and stylists to the stars, Silver Spoon Attire to take a look at their Back to College range. Think rucksacks and holdalls in block coloured red and black lacquer fabric complete with the obligatory Kipling monkey, and he’s furry! I picked out a screaming red holdall and chose a selection of tassels, pom poms and Americana style letters (my initials) and handed it over to the more than capable Silver Spoon Attire team to work their magic. Designers by trade, the team are used to working with celebrities such as Rihanna, Daisy Lowe, Eliza Dolittle and Tinie Tempah. Aside from that, I knew I was in good hands when I spotted one of the team in a Christopher Kane t-shirt.
The (not so) bad news: Due to the popularity of Silver Spoon Attire’s customizing skills, I wasn’t able to take my bag home today as they didn’t have enough time to finish it. They’d been working for six hours straight hand stitching pom poms, tassels and the like onto the bags. However, it should be delivered to me soon and I will share it with you in all its customised glory.
The good news: Kipling and the Silver Spoon Attire team will be in Manchester, Birmingham (Selfridges) and back in London (John Lewis) over the next few weeks so that anyone who purchases an item from their Back to College range will have option to visit their customisation bar and put their own personal stamp on it.
