Helena Christensen for Kipling

Model turns handbag designer

Helena Christensen has designed an 11-piece collection for handbag brand Kipling, inspired by her personal collection of photographs.

The model is in good company with the collaboration, with names like Peter Pilotto and Jean-Charles de Castelbajac lending their creative minds to the Belgian-based brand in the past.

And it’s not her first foray into fashion design, with her previous lingerie collection for Triumph Essence.

The Kipling collection focuses on a print of dusky rose flower captured by Christensen - how very forward thinking following the spring/summer 14 wave of dusky pink and florals.

Touches of lace print alongside classic tan leather add to the vintage feel of the bags - we can't wait to go shopping.
