Kipling, international handbag, travel and accessories brand officially launched their #Back2Kipling Campaign with Youtube darling Megan Nicole last night in New York City. The rising pop star hosted the kick off event at The Old School by performing an acoustic set of her top hits. The classroom space unveiled images from the campaign along with the newest back-to-school products in playful prints and lightweight functionality.
Offering a range of backpacks, totes, cross-bodies, luggage, and accessories in Kipling’s signature, crinkle nylon, the Back-to-School Collection has something for everyone. Inspired by the tropics, the color palette includes deep jewel tones and lively tribal prints in both new and returning styles.
“Kipling always had an energetic vibe that I was excited to bring with me to school. The patterns are fresh and unique, which is what I look for in back-to-school style,” expresses Megan Nicole.
The celebration will continue in Miami on July 12th from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. EST. at Kipling’s new Miami International Mall location. Megan Nicole will perform at the grand celebration, which will also feature a meet and greet, giveaways, back-to-school flashback photo booth, free monogramming and other playful activities. This event is open to the public and guests can RSVP at kipling-usa.com/miamirsvp.
“The Back-to-School season is one of the most exciting and important times of the year for us,” says President of Kipling North America, Julie Dimperio. “Individual style, a vibrant personality and creative vision are what captivated us about Megan Nicole. We couldn’t be happier to introduce Megan as the face of our #Back2Kipling Campaign.”
The Kipling Back-to-School Collection is now available on Kipling-USA.com, in select Macy’s department stores and authorized Kipling retailers nationwide, and in Kipling full-price retail stores: Aventura, FL; Doral, FL; Honolulu, HI; Beverly Hills, CA and San Juan, PR.
Taking a sneak peek at Julien Fournié’s Fall 2014 haute couture collection, we see multiple shades of black taking center stage thanks to a few chosen contrasting colors which directed the attention to the shadow instead of the light.
“I’ve been thinking about the precise elegance of Maria Casarès in the 1945 movie by Riobert Bresson Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne,” said Julien Fournié when asked about his inspiration for the collection.
Everything is not black and white, as you can see. Yet, what is interesting is the question that the couturier asked himself, “How could I render the charm printed on film in black and white, and integrate it to the necessary colors of real life?”
He found the answer and you will discover it on Jun 8, 2014 at the Oratoire du Louvre, 145 rue Saint-Honoré, Paris 1er where he will unveil is Fall 2014 haute couture collection.

Anna Wintour will be honored with the Michael Kors Award for Outstanding Community Service at the Eighth Annual God’s Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards dinner on October 16th, Kors announced today. “She’s been an incredible supporter of God’s Love We Deliver and her dedication to community service knows no bounds,” Kors said in a statement. Wintour follows in the footsteps of Hillary Clinton who picked up the inaugural award from Kors last year. God’s Love is the New York metropolitan area’s leading provider of life-sustaining meals and nutrition counseling for people living with severe illnesses. The gala will also honor CBS honcho Leslie Moonves, who will receive the Golden Heart Award for Lifetime Achievement, which will be presented by Halle Berry (who joins the CBS family this summer inExtant, hitting the boob tube on Wednesday nights). Blaine Trump and Kors will help serve as event co-chairs along with Berry and John D. Idol, Chairman and CEO of Michael Kors. U.S. senator Kirsten Gillibrand will serve as honorary co-chair of the dinner. This year’s gala will once again be held at Spring Studios in Manhattan.

Atelier Versace kicked off the Couture season yesterday, and Donatella Versace‘s latest was seeped in glamour, but that of a tailored sort. Her first look was a woolen rounded shoulder jacket paired with a wrap skirt that was fairly subdued, save for a panel of sheer boning at the waist. This subtle nod to the art of tailoring ran through the collection writ large. Another important detail throughout the show? The art of deconstruction. Ball gowns were paired down to a bustier and a voluminous silk skirt that didn’t quite make a full circle. Then, there was the evening dress slit to the waist, revealing some trou underneath, or the white dress with a sparkly bodice that seemed pieced together by only a few strips of fabric. On the beauty front, things were quite put together, including a strong cat-eye and a slicked back chignon-ponytail hybrid. Other polished flourishes included leather gloves, or a single dangling earring. Donatella’s take on tailored works wonders in our book.
