I think Radley are one of those brands that, for me, have always been synonymous with a slightly older audience than myself, so I have to admit I've not really given them too much of a thought for the past couple of years. However, they've had something of a renaissance in the past few years, as the signature Scottie dog has become something more refined, opening the door to something really elegant and beautiful.
To get the lowdown on what the brand means in 2017, I spoke to Natalie Bolton, creative director of the brand.
1. Who’s your dream customer?
A curious modern woman.
2. What five words sum up your brand?
Curious, inventive, colourful, stylish and loved.
3. What’s your favourite piece from the AW17 collection?
There are a few pieces I love – the Oxleas tote, and in our non-leather collection the Gladstone park backpack – I love its tech pocket.
4. What's in the pipeline for Radley?
We are gearing up for Christmas and the collection looks amazing, from day to night pieces, to amazing gifts. We have just been on the Christmas shoot bringing the collection alive in a really energetic form.
