For us here at Radley London, the city is our home. After what has been an unusual few months, we wanted our new collection to honour the aspects of city life for which we feel nostalgic.
We’ve been inspired by London’s forgotten beauties – the 1930s ceramic tiling that decorates underground stations, the nature and wildlife that exists within our parks and the metropolitan landmarks that we previously overlooked on our daily commutes.
With work, leisure and occasion bags designed to support you in your new normal, our From London with Love collection will help you to rediscover your love for your own home, wherever that may be.
Plus read to the end, where we give you the chance to win a handbag of your choice from the new collection.
THE DESIGN DETAILS
The collection includes new designs and collectible limited editions, as well as firm favourites from previous seasons and remastered heritage styles.
As always, we’ll have handbags and purses expertly crafted in quality leathers, with distinctive branded hardware and a new emphasis on texture – we love the retro-inspired glossy mock croc.
THE NEW STYLES
Inspired by the streets, parks and people of London, we’ll be introducing brand new styles. These include trend-led looks like Lansdowne Road, available in several leather finishes and studded variations; and the quaint Book Street bag with a series of limited editions.
These new designs will be joined by our iconic families, like Pockets and London Pockets, our West View purses, Radley Crest and the Dukes Place handbag collection. We’re also welcoming back Abingdon Road and Silk Street – tote bags that were introduced in Spring/Summer 2020 – in fresh colours from our new palette.
THE REIMAGINED FAVOURITES
Much like how we’re seeing the city from a new perspective, we’ve also started to look at some of our heritage styles through a new lens. As part of From London with Love, we’re introducing an updated rendition of our bestselling Liverpool Street bag, which feels distinctly reminiscent of the original even with its renewed, modern details. To read more about Liverpool Street 2.0, check back here soon for a Q&A with one of our Senior Designers.
We’ll also reintroduce Soho Remastered – a slouchy hobo bag with fresh, new details. Available in two sizes and as a clutch, this design uses soft premium leather to create a relaxed shape, each finished with intricate stitching and our signature Radley London logo.
STEPS IN SUSTAINABILITY
We’ve also enhanced our focus on non-leather by taking further steps towards sustainability. From now on, bags that have been produced using responsible processes and materials will sit within our Radley Responsible collection. The first to join it is Finsbury Park, a product family entirely crafted in recycled nylon and water-based PU. With ten different shapes and styles available, Finsbury Park caters for everyone. It also introduces our new pattern, Radley Geo, which can be found printed on the lining of each bag.
