Our 2022 Radley Wrapped is Here
22 December 2022
Scottie dog adventures, new versions of our most popular bags, and designs that are always ahead of the trends. It’s been a busy year for the Radley London Design Team, and they’re looking forward to a well-earned rest (glass of Baileys in-hand) over Christmas and New Year.
We caught up with Zizi, our Director of Design, to look back at some of our most beautiful styles of 2022. You’ve had Spotify Wrapped, now it’s time for Radley Wrapped. This is a year in London designed, artisan-crafted style. Needless to say, it was incredibly hard for her to choose. Luckily these are all still available to buy.
“Our Liverpool Street 2.0 satchel was one of my favourite styles from Spring. It’s a timeless handbag that's great for running around London. We took inspiration from equestrianism for this silhouette.
“Loaf Lane is a perfect grab bag that I used all through the season for work. It's in a beautiful natural leather that ages so well. It’s also got a secure lock that really elevates the design.”
“Market Street was the must have fun bag in the summer. We took it to Wimbledon and for a picnic on London's Hampstead Heath. It’s beautifully designed and made with appliquéd panels and cute strawberry details.
“Green Lane is so soft and unstructured in beautiful suede which was perfect for the warmer months. The styling is so simple and elegant. I also love that it’s so lightweight and can fold up easily to pack for travelling - truly the perfect holiday bag.
“Lynscott Way is a beautiful bucket bag, one of my all-time favourite silhouettes as they're so timeless and always work across the seasons. Ours is made in a gorgeous vintage-style leather that will age beautifully the more you use it.”
“Grosvenor Remastered is beautiful - the team have done an amazing job of reimagining this classic and well-loved style from our archive. I love the mix of textures, the elegant suede and snakeskin. The additional lock hardware just elevates and adds to the vintage feel.
“Sunny Rise is a firm favourite of mine - it's so great for day to evening. I especially love the finishes and colour versions we've created for the party season.”
“Garrick Street encompasses the Winter theme of hiking and being out in nature perfectly. It’s so stylish yet functional. I've also got the backpack in this family which is amazing, I’ll be taking it on a January walk or two.
“Hillgate Place is an amazing style that's really modern, with a cool webbing strap. It's so spacious, I can fit everything I need in there - and more. The leather is so thick and luxurious. Definitely a core staple for 2023 too.”
Thanks Zizi, we’ve loved looking back at 2022 with you.
