Helena Christensen for Kipling
Helena Christensen is my all time favourite model!
She is such a unique beauty with the most amazing features! And at 44, she still looks pretty darn hot!!!
Helena has been involved in many roles; from beauty queen (winning the Miss Denmark title back in 1986), to international model, to Creative Director for Nylon magazine, clothing designer and renowed photographer!
She’s an icon with a well rounded eye for style!
Helena has paired up with luggage and lifestyle brand, Kipling to create a collection of unique bags, inspired by her life and captured through her eyes!
The collection features a vintage feel with lace touches and a dusky pink shade that represent Helena’s passion for capturing unique beauty.
This collection will be available in South Africa this month and can be found at the Kipling store in Sandton.
Q & A’s With Helena
What is the inspiration for the collection?
I just wanted there to be a bag for any occasion, and was inspired by dusty colours for the photographic print bag. The leather series was inspired by those old square schoolbags that get all worn out and look more and more beautiful with time.
The lace series was inspired by my old vintage lace dresses. I wanted to transfer that look onto a modern and versatile bag.
What do you look for in a bag?
Space! But nothing that looks too oversized, I like a bag that fits under your arm and still has enough space for even a weekend away. For evening wear I like a pouch that sits comfortably in your hand and fits just the most necessary for an evening out.
What’s your favourite bag?
I like the little leather pouch. It looks chic yet simple. I think with time it will get a nice worn feel and look that will make it even cooler.
