Kipling History: Kipling is a Belgian fashion brand founded in 1987 in Antwerp, Belgium. Kipling brand is part of VF Corporation since 2004. Their most famous collection is Basic, recognizable from its crinkle nylon fabric and its monkey zipper. Kipling sells handbags, backpacks, totes, luggage and accessories. Kipling's name was inspired by Rudyard Kipling, the author of The Jungle Book. The original designers wanted a name that could be easy to pronounce. The monkey key-hanger is usually associated to Kipling brand. Every Kipling bag comes with a monkey key-hanger. Originally, there was only one type of monkey, which could be easily recognized by its shape and characteristic colored fur. Since Kipling has developed several collections representing several styles, the monkey evolved as well. Now each collection corresponds to a type of monkeys. The "monkey" figure on the key-hanger is tailless, and perhaps would be better termed an "ape", however, the terms "monkey" and "ape" are sometimes used interchangeably in casual usage. The Kipling logo used on the Kipling website is a monkey with a tail, and so is a "monkey" by any definition. The original furry monkeys from Kipling brand have a label with a name on it. The different names come from Kipling employees all over the world. Each name corresponds to a color. Models: Elise Crombez was chosen as model for the autumn winter 2009, as well as for spring summer 2010 Kipling collection. Anouck Lepère was chosen as model for the autumn winter 2010 Kipling collection. She is also posing for Peter Pilotto's collaboration with Kipling. iPhone Apps: A weather broadcast, collections and store locator iPhone application, named KWeather, was released on 3 January 2010.
