After three years and seven seasons, our designers have updated one of our bestselling styles. As part of our new collection, From London with Love, we’re introducing Liverpool Street 2.0. Remastered and updated, this handbag combines all the favoured features from the original with new, contemporary details.
Crafted with the same quality leather, grab handles and logo detailing, Liverpool Street 2.0 will feel very familiar. This update brings a refined shape with softer curves and elegant crossover side details, plus beautifully engineered moulded leather handle tabs and an all-new hanging Radley dog key charm.
We know you’ll love these new details as much as we do, but we also know how beloved our original Liverpool Street bag is, which is why we’ve kept some of its most popular features, including the same premium leather finish, triple compartment interior and detachable strap.
When was the original Liverpool Street launched?
Liverpool Street has been a core classic for the Radley customer since its launch back in 2017. I distinctly remember the excitement around this new bag, which was designed by our Head of Design Zizi. We instantly knew it was a winner – it’s a very classic Radley look.
Then why update it now?
The timing feels right. Liverpool Street has evolved not only for a new, modern look but also for the technical construction. This bag is like a piece of art – it needs to be stitched on a wooden block to get the perfect shape; the interior bonded suedette gives the bag a cleaner, sleeker internal look; not to mention the edge paint technology… all these techniques were less available back in 2017. The Liverpool Street 2.0 is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.
What features did you keep the same and why?
We had to keep the functionality. I believe the success of Liverpool Street is the wonderful multi-compartment construction – our Radley customer loves an organised bag! I also think the leather was non-negotiable. The Liverpool Street leather is very smart and elegant but also very hardwearing. It holds its shape and the structure of the leather allows the bag to sit proudly. It lasts the test of time and wear.
What are the new features?
The handle tabs are lifted from the original Liverpool Street. We still felt strongly for the elegant handle shape, but we elevated it with a moulded leather effect that gives more depth and interest to the bag, further highlighting the timeless details of the original.
The shape of the 2.0 has much more rounded corners, giving it a soft, feminine look. It looks super modern and premium, fitting in with Radley’s contemporary collections.
Key fob charm
The new key fob is a wonderful addition. The Liverpool Street has always had a cheerful charm, so we felt it was really exciting to update it in a more sophisticated way, with our iconic Scottie dog in shiny metal.
The hardware details have also been enhanced with a new and refined lustrous finish.
Who will love Liverpool Street 2.0?
I think this design caters to so many women. It can be dressed up or down, it can be used for work and the mini size can be used for a night out. It’s so versatile and functional; it looks timeless and classic. It is the bag that has it all.
Which colour will you be buying and where will you be taking it?
I LOVE the Dark Butter. It is a really on-trend autumnal mustard tan that I think will look great with denim or my wintery camel colour coat. I also think the medium is such a great size – living in London, having space for a book is a must to pass the time on the tube!
We think you’ll love the new Liverpool Street 2.0 as much as we do. Discover our large workbag shape (exclusively in Black), and small and medium multiways in our classic colours, as well as shades from our new autumnal palette, including Mahogany brown and Rio red.
