Bags for the Generations.
Kingsclere is a fashion brand with a story spanning 3 decades of the Kelly family. In the 70s and 80s Oliver and Paddy Kelly lived in the small village of Kingsclere and owned 4 jean shops called Kings Road, after the iconic street in London that was the centre for fashion at the time. During this time they were part of a growing accessibility to fashion and freedom of expression. The Kelly’s also started a family that became 5 kids. Now 20 years later the stores have been sold and Damien and Neve Kelly are creating Kingsclere with a bag line. The father and daughter team are looking to create bags that reflect the heritage of the Kingsclere name. Jeans are the workhorses of clothing and a major fashion icon. The backpack is the same. We make fashionable, quality bags that reflect people’s good taste and love of style. Bags that will be loved for generations.
We make timeless product.
Our bags are made for travel in our communities and into the broader world. We fly on planes and take trains, we walk and ride bikes and sometimes go for hikes. We make bags that support our adventure through life by helping us take what we need with a touch of practicality and fashion. We are more than a bag brand. We are a reflection of our family through generations of design and adventure. We feel a need to connect with family and our communities, to travel and connect with the stories and history that lead to where we are now.
