Sneaky peek at tonight’s TSV!!

Hi Ladies,

With so many Kipling shows its like Christmas has come early!!

We kick off at midnight tonight and I thought it would only be fair to give you a little peek at the TSV!! ;o)


It is the Priska in some fab colours! There will be lots of other amazing styles but you will have to tune in to find out what they are!

Which colour are you loving the most?

Looking forward to your company tonight!

Love Marie xx

p.s.I did’t get a chance to post it at the weekend but here I am with my bags! Such a proud moment!


Count down….

Hi Ladies,

I am counting down to Saturday and cant wait for you all to finally see my bag live on air.

As promised earlier in the week here is part 2 to the behind the scenes video. I had such a good time with the Kipling design team, it was a great experience to have and to be able to see all the processes before the bag actually makes it into the collection. It were several months of hard work and I cant believe the launch is finally here.

Will be posting some sneaky pics prior to going on air of my bag so keep an eye out for them.

Marie Francoise for Kipling!

Hi Ladies,

I am so excited to finally be able to share with you my latest Kipling project.

Earlier this year I got to design my own bag! Together with the fab Kipling design  team we were able to develop the perfect bag exclusive for QVC. I took on board all comments I received through the shows and in general talking to different women about their perfect bag. The one thing  everyone looks for is organisation, to be able to find your keys easily, your phone when it is ringing and a place for your small essentials. So with all this information we came up with a fab shopper bag with lots of different compartments.

The great news is that you wont have to wait long to see it as it will be launched in this week’s Kipling shows on Saturday the 23rd of November at 12:00pm and 19:00pm.

So you are not missing out on anything we have filmed the whole design process for you to get a glimpse behind the scenes. ;o)) Below you will see part 1 of my journey.

Counting the minutes until Saturday!! Why not give us a ring live on air, looking forward to hearing from you!

Love Marie xx

p.s. look out for part 2 of my video coming soon!

Summer 2013

Hi Ladies,

Well what a week with the fab Kipling TSV, you ladies went crazy for the bird print and blue snake!

With the weekend almost here I thought I would share one of my projects this my summer. As Autumn slowly creeps in it seems like a long time ago now ;o))

Together with the Travel Channel I got to explore Ibiza by jeep, boat, foot and underwater, scuba diving and stand up paddle boarding. It was an amazing trip and a very fun job! My trip was made a lot easier with the help from Kipling. The Darcey suitcase was ideal as it fits plenty of clothes for a two week trip and all I needed for water sports, it is so lightweight. The Kari remains a favourite for makeup, the perfect handbag size and Creativity is brilliant for taking foreign currency, passport and itinerary. The Firefly is a great option as a back pack for trekking and having my hands free and weight distributed evenly, good for all I needed- sun hat/water/suntan lotion/makeup and spare clothes for filming.

I had the most amazing time and I completely fell in love with Ibiza. I am already thinking about next year! ;o)

What bags were your companions during your summer adventures?

Wishing you all a fab weekend!

Fall is here…

Hi Kipling Fans!

What a great summer we are having and we are still enjoying this glorious sunshine! But I am already thinking of my winter wardrobe, well at least what new goodies I can add to it ;o))

I have compiled a list (which doesn’t stop growing). My list wouldn’t be complete without a couple of Kipling bags! I am really excited about Kipling’s new Fall range, it includes two fab new collections Vivy and Mixte! The styles are really on trend with the perfect mix of colours to carry you through winter.

My selection of the perfect outfit includes clothes from Zara, shoes and accessories from TopShop and bags from Kipling: Small bag Dee from Basic and Large bag Ulyssa from Vivy. I love all the neutral tones together with the bright accessories!
