With the world set to be gripped by Barbie core fever this summer, Belgian bag and accessories brand Kipling is thrilled to launch its collaboration with the iconic fashion doll. The range is a playful and positive collection finished in pink, perfectly colour matched to the iconic hue instantly recognizable as Barbie.
Featuring zips and trimmings in white, there’s a super sweet feel to these innovatively crafted delectables that are lacquered with a transparent glaze to create a special shiny version of Kipling’s signature crinkle nylon. Stand-out details include a silicone Barbie logo tag, adding the iconic brand to the seam on the bag’s side.
On the opposite side, a doll, wearing a Barbie-pink jacket, dangles from the handle. A close look at this key hanger doll – which is also available as a standalone accessory – will reveal she is carrying an Abanu bag, and dangling from that is one of Kipling’s much-loved monkey charms, covered in Barbie-pink fur.
The range of eight bags features some of Kipling’s most wanted and bestseller styles including the Art lightweight tote and the compact Seoul backpack. Smaller-scale bags include the top handle Bina, cross-body Afia, shoulder bags Gabbie Mini and Ayda, and the Creativity pouch. The collection is completed by the inclusion of the Yasemina waist-pack, the perfect option to complement your ensemble this summer.
The bags’ linings all feature a playful mix of photorealistic Barbie dolls and Barbie logos, and each bag is signed off with the classic Kipling roundel logo in the centre.
The collection will be available from 13-14 July 2023 exclusively on Lazada Singapore and will launch on 15 July at official Kipling boutiques and concierge shopping service on WhatsApp at 8928 0706, as well as selected department stores where Kipling is sold.
