A day in my life with Kipling bags


This Wednesday our Today’s Special Value offer is a gorgeous Kipling cross-body Zephyrus bag and matching Creativity purse set in six different colour options. Three prints – Violet Paisley, White Lace and Red Feather, plus three block colours – Bright Lavender, Black and Warm Toffee and all created especially for QVC UK.

We caught up with Kipling brand ambassador and QVC guest Marie-Françoise Wolff to find out more about this gorgeous TSV and just how much she loves her Kipling bag collection.

Marie-Françoise it’s over to you…

A day in the life.

I use my Kipling bags all the time, especially for everyday errands. Here I am bright and early, at the hairdresser’s before I go to a shoot, with the Zephyrus Today’s Special Value bag and Creativity purse set in Bright Lavender. It gives such a positive pop of colour on a grey day! I’m always on the go so I use the Creativity purse to hold my phone charger in one compartment and my phone on the other; then I attach the purse to a key fob so it’s really easy to find. Coincidentally I met a fellow Kipling fan who watches the QVC Kipling shows and had the Cation New Money shoulder bag and wallet set with her!

After the hairdressers I jumped on the tube to get to Kipling HQ where we were filming. I brought with me the Zephyrus bag in White Lace and wore my matching scarf. The print is in True Blue – a dark inky tone and the white is the Winter White which is a putty tone. The print is surprisingly easy to wear with most colours and the bag is fab to travel with as it’s such a lightweight cross-body, and it’s water resistant too.

Above are a few behind the scenes photos from the filming in Kipling’s London showroom I’m still wearing the White Lace scarf! I’m using the new Dragonfly print Toiletry Bag and Sheena Pouch set for my make-up and hair things. It holds so much! The Zephyrus bags in the photos include the Bright Lavender, White Lace and the Red Feather options. It’s always fun at QVC!

You can see all the colour options that will be available on Tuesday now – just check out the video here:

Being in the showroom is like a sweetshop of Kipling goodies. I’ve also been to Kipling HQ in Belgium with the QVC presenters from Germany, France and Italy.  I’m wearing the Sunita bag in this photo.

After filming I dashed off to do some shopping, I was feeling a little bit smug getting all my shopping in the bags, plus they’re so light before you put anything in them! Kipling do fantastic foldable zipped shoppers check them out! I was going to a friend’s for dinner later in the day and I could even fit the wine in the bag ; ) Kipling can take the weight! Plus the Zephyrus White Lace print looks great with denim and bold colours too!

After a quick dash around the shops I went to meet my mum for coffee and a chat. What girl doesn’t love coffee and cake?! I wore the Amiel handbag in Moonscape, and my mum uses the Chantra bag in Marine which she had with her.

Finally before going to my friend’s for dinner, I took the dogs for a walk and carried the Zephyrus Feather Print. It’s good to use the compartments for various doggie things as well as my own. The fact that it is light, water-resistant, durable and easy to clean means I don’t have to worry about the mud! You can just wipe the bag clean or, personally I put them in the washing machine on a cool wash and hang to dry.

    Hi Marie-Francois
    Looking forward to seeing this on air. I have already seen the one I want, white lace. Glad it’s on easy pay because it’s not the time of year to treat myself.

    Have a lovely Christmas.

    Hi Marie-Francoise, I love your Kipling bags, I have 12 and hope for more but have not added to my collection for quite a while now because of two changes in their design. Please please could you ask the designers to bring back the double pen pockets along with the double slot pockets. When I change the bag I’m using I like to be able to transfer everything to the same pockets to the new bag so that I know I have everything with me. All the bags I wanted to buy did not have all 4 pockets, in fact some only had one pocket!
    The other things that have stopped me buying are the spot and heart linings the designers are now using. There are a number of of bags I would buy but for these horrible linings.
    would you please pass on my heart felt plea to the designers to bring back the 4 pockets and the lovely light gray lining that makes my kipling bags a pleasure to use, I would love to buy more.
    I do hope they will listen, I’m not the only one who feels this way all my Kipling friends agree
    Thank you and best wishes..
