To Do Wednesday: In the Bag

Helena Christensen.

Helena Christensen.

Kipling, the bag mostly favored by backpackers and European tourists, is upping its image via supermodel Helena Christensen. The brand, which uses a monkey as a symbol, is unveiling its debut Fashion Week ’13 collection starring model/photographer/jet-set bohemian Ms. Christensen with a fancy cocktail party on the now-warm Gramercy Park Hotel rooftop terrace. Expect Ms. Christensen’s pals like movie star Liv Tyler and Cinema Society founder Andrew Saffir to be double-kissing the Danish diva’s cheeks all night.

Gramercy Park Hotel, 2 Lexington Avenue, (212) 995-1330, 6pm-8pm, by invitation only.
