I took my family to the grand opening of Kipling’s first full price retail location in the San Diego area at Fashion Valley. As I’ve mention previously, my mum is a big fan of Kipling, and really only carries their brand of crossbody bags, totes, and backpacks. After getting to know the company, I can see why!
Our tale is a fun one that dates back to 1987, when three designer pals in Antwerp, Belgium stumbled upon a happy accident on a loom and discovered crinkled nylon fabric … and voila! A world of bright and colorful bags and accessories were born. Playfully dubbed Kipling, after the clever little spirit of the monkeys in Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book, our story came to life and has been an inspiration around the world ever since. – From the official Kipling Website
The new store is bright, colorful and fun just like their bags! I know my mum loves the utility of Kipling’s purses in their signature crinkle nylon. She never has to worry about her purses getting wet or having stuck zippers, and is never lacking for easy style.
It was a change of pace for me to bring more than just my hubby or son to an event, but it made for a fun late afternoon with my family. Be sure to visit Kipling’s newest location at Fashion Valley, cheers!

No detail was spared! How cute are the decorative elements on the tables?

It was fun bringing my family to an event, and of course my mum couldn’t leave without purchasing a new Kipling backpack (which earned her the free gift with purchase)!
My new little pouch c/o Kipling is so cute!
