Retro Magic

You'd think that Radley were mad to present their AW collection against the dramatic 360 backdrop of the London skyline on the 33rd floor of Centre Point's Paramount Club, but, it was a shrewd move, the collection completely won over my attention, I won't be forgetting it for a long time. There was a retro undercurrent present that has been popping up across many AW accessories collections, a welcome nod to the late 60's and early 70's with boxy shapes, bold choices of colour accents and pretty patterned embossed leathers. I learned today this great British brand originates from Camden, starting off in the Stables Market back in the 80's and with its HQ in Mornington Crescent. I'm a massive fan of 'loving local' and will definitely be making a move on one of the classic Grosvenor bags, updated for next season with classy round studs.
