Helena Christensen for Kipling Collection Launch


The rain on Wednesday night did not stop downtown hipsters from attending supermodel/photographer Helena Christensen and Kipling ‘s private affair to view their Fall 2013 collection at the Rooftop Terrace of Gramery Park Hotel.

Guests sipped cocktails and snacked on hors d’oeuvres while DJ Mia Morretti manned the turntables. Christensen happily answered questions while carrying a black/brown leather Cross-Over clutch ($129).“Kipling is a brand that I have used for so many years, it’s a part of my travel,” said Christensen, “ Working with the design team has been a great eye-opener, understanding and appreciating all of the elements to consider in order to make a bag durable and long-lasting whilst having true credentials in style and being fashion led.”

The collection will retail for $109 to $269 and will be available in select Macy’s stores, Kipling stores nationwide and on www.kipling-usa.com beginning September 2013.
