We are a London born design team, passionate about crafting handbags and accessories for women who are continuously inspired by life. Our products blend colour, character and functionality to create collections that are distinctive in style and classic in quality and finish. We hope you enjoy exploring our world.
Radley was originally founded in London by Lowell Harder, a young entrepreneur who started her handbag journey as part of a wave of new creatives setting up businesses in Camden Market in the midst of the 1980s. Driven by a passion for colour, luxurious leathers and carefully considered design, Harder went on to launch Radley in 1998. The confidence of this playful new brand saw women the world over take Radley to its hearts.
Our Radley dog was born after a search was started for an icon to represent the playful personality of our brand. The very British looking Scottie, with his distinctive outline and bright red collar was a small idea sketched by our designers and proved to be a huge success – dog lovers all over the world fell for him just like we did!
Our in-house designers are a small but mighty team based at our London Head Office. Each season our new styles are inspired by the shapes and colours we see – from exhibitions and design trips to a plethora of Pinterest boards. Keeping an open mind (and a sense of humour) is key to creating styles that are packed with personality.
