That iconic monkey you see hanging on someone’s bag is what well-loved global brand, Kipling is known for. The iconic “Kipling Monkey” always brings so much memory to me. Growing up, the brand has been a favorite of my generation and I know it still is not only for my generation but others as well. So when I learned that their newest concept store in SM Megamall dubbed as House of Kipling will officially open next week, I couldn’t contain my excitement. So here’s a peek at the new look.
Inside the House of Kipling, guests are greeted with warm, homey interiors made from an eclectic mix of natural and clean textures, surrounded by the signature tile wall with the iconic monkey print. The color palette plays along the shades of taupe and greys, plus an occasional pop of orange and pink. Flemish inspired wall tiles and “Kipling Monkey” table legs bring to life the playful spirit and the European heritage of the brand.
Love the mix of ceramic and wood–it makes the hottest collection of handbags, totes, carry-alls, backpacks and luggage in various shapes, prints and sizes stand out even more! I spy so many lovely looking bags, that have definitely caught my eye. WANT. WANT. WANT. NEED. NEED. NEED. Because, we can never have too many bags, diveeeez?! Heehee.
Reflecting Kipling’s desire to encourage discovery and exploration, the concept store also features a ‘Whimsy Wall’, where ideas, inspirations, special moments, and messages can be posted and shared so the store and customers can connect and become an engaged community. I love the pastel accent drawers which I assume is where the stocks of small accessories like wallet & pouch are.
Nearby are clusters of colorful mirrors helping customers envision themselves strutting away their favorite Kipling bags. Bright, polychromatic poufs are likewise on hand offering a comfortable seating should customers get a little tired from bag fitting and shopping.
The House of Kipling has put together all these elements and details, allowing shoppers have a personal and intimate feel of Kipling bags. Now if you’re as excited to be reunited with Kipling Monkey as I am, come and visit the 7th shop of Kipling on the 20th of April. If you’re the first 100 customers that day or a Kipling Loyalty Cardholder, you get a 50% price off on their Spring 2016 collection. Yes, 50% OFF!
