Radley X Holly Fulton
I think it's safe to say I never saw this coming. Never has a collaboration had more of a transformative effective on my perception of a brand than this one. I LOVE Holly Fulton, she is one of my favourite designers working today. Radley however well Radley was the bags my mum bought when she was looking for something well made and practical and a bit well, for me, dull.
When I first heard Radley were teaming up with Holly Fulton I'm pretty sure I straight out guffawed (which people still do btw, case and point.) Fulton's signature graphic prints are teamed here with statement clutch bags (a fan, an envelope and of course a Scottie dog.) It is one of the best collaborations I've seen in a long time. It's not completely inoffensively priced either with the doggie bag (lol I see what you did there Radley) clocking in at £129 creeping up to £249 for the moon and slouch bags.
Quirky, high fashion statement bags. What's not to love? I find myself quite taken by the tan leather but if I had to choose just one piece to be mine? It would totally have to be the Renn clutch bag in black, white and red. It feels like an instant classic and I surely can't be the only one feeling total Twin Peaks vibes off it no?
So what we thinking guys - Radley X Holly Fulton. Design match made in heaven?
