London - Handbag and accessories label Kipling is set to launch a 90s inspired capsule collection in honour of its 30th anniversary.

The capsule collection is a throwback to the brand’s roots as it sees Kipling revisiting the styles is first started out with. Founded in Antwerp in 1987 by Paul van de Velde and Xavier Kegels, the brand has grown into a casual fashion brand since then, offering its brands in 67 countries around the world.

The 90s inspired collection is set to offer 5 styles in 5 colourways, including a sporty fanny pack, a small backpack, small shoulder bags as well as a hold-all. Each of the handbags silhouettes in the collection has been inspired by designs from the brand's archives and given a 90s twist. The ‘vintage’ collection features authentic touches, such as Kipling’s authentic round logo, large zippers and its iconic monkey keychain. The bags will be released in key colours, including yellow, red, white, blue and black.

“We started by going back 30 years into our archives. And we discovered that the bags are just as timeless, modern and relevant as they were when they launched for the first time,” said Jurgen Derycke, omnichannel marketing manager at Kipling. “By relaunching these in their original styles we get an authentic and nostalgic collection that is still on-trend. We have seen the major success of the 90s trend, so we have gone back to basics for this collection.”

Kipling 90s ‘vintage’ collection is set to launch online and in stores in time for the start of the holiday season at the end of November.
