Curved bags are big news for spring – and we couldn’t be happier. Feeling instantly fresh and distinct from 2020’s slouchy silhouettes, this season sees new rounded shapes take centre stage. With clean lines and minimal details, arched designs set a positive tone for 2021 and beyond.

There are a few reasons we love curved bags so much. One: their silhouettes feel contemporary yet classic at the same time. Two: you can wear them in more ways than one. And, three: they can be styled with almost anything – from casual clothes to workwear.

Rounded bags can easily elevate a whole host of outfits: once you find the right style for you, it’ll quickly become one of your most worn accessories. Expertly crafted – and thoughtfully designed to carry you through all four seasons – these are the three curved designs you need on your radar:

One of our most stylish, compact bags to date: Pier Walk is also one of our most practical silhouettes. Its smooth design features a front zipped pocket, main compartment and a discreet press-stud slot to the back – perfect for storing your face mask.

We love how it’s mock croc leather and gleaming hardware add interest to tonal outfits. Knits, tees, dresses – the luxurious texture will elevate any look. Plus, the curved design sits beautifully across the body or around the waist.

 

Last season we introduced Liverpool Street 2.0: a new edition of a Radley London favourite. Crafted with premium leather, softer curved corners and moulded handle tabs, the multiway handbag cemented its status as a modern icon.

Liverpool Street 2.0 is back for spring with a new colour palette inspired by the serenity of our local shores. Whether you pick Yale, Blue Heather or our contemporary Colour-block design – the everyday staple promises practical style all year round.

Inspired by the 90s trends that continue to influence fashion, our Design team created a new take on the decade’s It-bag. Meet Summerstown: our sumptuously soft shoulder bag with multiway functionality.

Just like the retro designs that inspired it, the curved bag is versatile and minimal. You can wear it across the body or remove the long strap completely and carry it over your shoulder – the slim silhouette will fit snugly under your arm.
