From Radley website:
The spotlight was on Radley at Somerset House during London Fashion Week. As fashion’s elite headed into the first show of the day, they witnessed our gorgeous model Emily with 8 of Radley’s iconic Scottie dogs, revealing to the fashion crowd our new AW11 Grosvenor satchel in the season’s must have colour, burgundy!
Radley was founded in 1998 by Lowell Harder. Radley is a quirky, creative British brand that makes beautiful handbags and accessories known for their high quality, creative design and outstanding value. Radley's love for hand-crafted, distinctive designs is reflected in all of our products, as is our slightly eccentric Britishness! Inspired by cultures and crafts around the globe, our products reflect the vibrant pulse of London infused with great ideas from around the world.
We live for making beautiful things. This kind of zeal comes from heartfelt, individual creativity. Every handbag is created from an original design, exceptionally hand-crafting in high quality leather and other materials, as well as a distinctive pattern work with extraordinary colour schemes and unusual textures.
Creativity means different things to everyone. For the team at Radley, Creativity means lighting fires of inspiration and doing our job with passion. It means being restless. It means coming to work everyday and loving what you do. Being stimulated by the world outside the window as well as the world inside your head.
It means being open minded and listening to others. It means cultivating a disciplined eye and a wild mind. And it means thinking of our handbags as works of art and ourselves as artists, because having a vision is our biggest asset.
From the moment of design inspiration to the final construction of a bag, the focus is always on the end product. And it has to be right. It's a process that takes time because we do not believe in cutting corners. The product you receive from us is looked after from start to finish - we hope you enjoy owning a Radley piece.
