We asked our April Woman of Spirit – celebrated interior design expert Abigail Ahern – to handpick her favourite designs from our spring collection.
Our focus for 2021 is on celebrating women who are working to make a real difference in the world: the leaders, the freethinkers and the voices for change that inspire us every day at Radley London. Which is why we were incredibly excited to be invited to Abigail’s out-of-this-world home and chat with her about her career so far. It was an amazing day.
Abigail is a huge believer in statement styles and beautiful textures, so we couldn’t wait to see the handbags she chose as her favourites from our spring collection.
“Who doesn’t love animal print. It elevates your look in a nano second, while the super thick strap takes it to a whole other level, creating a beautiful focal point. Also, I love that I can carry it by the top handle when I’m running across town in a hurry to meetings or with the long shoulder strap – perfect for more leisurely strolling.”
“Exquisitely made, this fabulous shoulder bag adds an edgy note with its characterful strap. This is my ultimate go-to bag, it’s so beautifully crafted. It transitions from day to night really well and is perfect for carrying notebooks, keys, phone and make up.”
“There is something incredibly luxurious about the Ruffle Street bag. The detailing on the handle is exquisite, it’s got a beautiful silhouette, and the buttery colour takes it to another level.”
“I love this bag. I opened my first store in Cross Street 15 years ago, so I love the connection with the name. Not just that, but the black is a classic hue that goes with every outfit I own. The chain adds such a luxe accent. I love its compact silhouette and that I can carry it by the handle or the strap.”
