Rest your fingers gently on a Lipault bag, and you’ll immediately know the difference. It’s a question of style, a certain finesse, a timeless elegance, a delicious frisson of minimalist French flair. Now, Inès de La Fressange, one of France’s most iconic fashion personalities, has joined forces with this premier Parisian brand to create a range of bags and luggage items with unmistakable sophistication and quality.
It’s a marriage made in heaven as they say: both Inès and Lipault are Parisian, with the Lipault design and development headquarters based in this fashion capital of the world. Both are inescapably classy and beautiful. The aristocratic Inès is a fashion muse for Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. She’s a classical, ageless model, who was added to the Vanity Fair International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame in 1998. She’s a perfumer. She is a globetrotting business woman, a writer and an art director for her own fashion brand, which is quickly expanding its international fan-base with desirable ready-to-wear lines and accessories. If anyone knows how to travel in style, it’s this lady. The new range incorporates a fluid synergy between duffle bags, backpacks, toiletry bags and wheeled suitcases. All are easy to use, comfortable to carry, and all are a fashion statement in their own right.
The Lipault Inès de La Fressange range includes the following made-to-match items in red and navy:
Lipault IDLF Capsule Collection Spinner: 55cm – R2 999, 65cm – R3 599, 72cm – R3 999
Lipault IDLF Capsule Collection Duffle Bag: R1 999
Lipault IDLF Capsule Collection Backpack (XS): R999, (Medium) – R1 199
Available at House of Samsonite stores or online at www.HouseOfSamsonite.co.za. Call 031 266 0620 for your nearest stockist.
I’ve just booked tickets to Paris for a little French rendezvous come Christmas time, and to celebrate, Lipault and I are spoiling one lucky Kim Gray reader to a little French style.
