Gina Rodriguez in Kipling Summer 2015 campaign

Actress Gina Rodriguez is the face of the Kipling Summer 2015 campaign. Gina stars in the CW's series Jane the Virgin. Gina won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in the series. The Kipling campaign was styled by Natalie Joos.

Gina says in a statement, "To me, Kipling has always embodied the perfect blend of comfort and femininity. When I was a teen, I saw my first Kipling bag with the cute monkey and wanted one so bad but couldn't afford it. I saved my allowances and eventually bought my first one all by myself. I kept that bag for over 10 years. Now I get to be a part of this beautiful movement. I love the way life works itself out – it's full circle."

Kipling's Back-to-Campus 2015 line will be available starting in June. Here is the behind-the-scenes video for the campaign. Gina can be seen posing next to a vehicle filled with luggage, blowing bubbles, carrying backpacks and and holding a pineapple.
