Kipling launched their “Monkey Mash-Up” last month inviting everyone to indulge their creative sides and customize their own bespoke Kipling monkey. People that visited the website were able to design their own monkey in order to be in with a chance of winning some fab prizes.
To start it all off, Kipling challenged a handful of cool people about town to design their own iconic monkey. These included Susie Lau of international renowned blog Style Bubble, Vogue’s “One to Watch” Alex Brownsell of colour salon Bleach, comic book artist and illustrator Jessica Penfold, illustrator / artist Margot Bowman, the Silver Spoon Attire designers, Paula Goldstein and Valentine Fillol – Cordier of Purple magazine. Now that the competition has ended and the winner announced (congrats, Caroline Carrig!) the monkeys these talented londoners designed are being auctioned off!

These one of a kind creations are going to be auctioned from 14th of June at Kipling Monkey Mash-up with all proceeds going to the Teenage Cancer Trust, a charity devoted to improving the lives of young people with cancer (if that’s not a worthy cause, I don’t know what is). Show your support by heading to the website now and bidding on your favourite!
