Limited Edition Radley Bags

Limited Edition Radley bags, Picture / Signature bags, aren’t they the same thing?

Well, the simple answer is no.

Signature or Picture bags are not technically limited editions.  Only a certain amount of these are made, but this number could run into the thousands or even tens of thousands.  The final production numbers will most likely only ever be known to Radley themselves.  Limited edition bags however are only produced in a specific small amount, 500 being the most we know of.

This list is not a definitive list of ALL the Radley limited edition bags. Information on limited edition bags from the past is very hard to come by. We will however update this list as we find new ranges or extra information.

    Hello Donna, looking online, no stockists appear to have that bag so the best advice from us would be to contact Radley Customer services: (08450707080) and ask them to check if any stock is left in any stores. Normally however last seasons stock goes to the outlets, so here you can see your nearest outlet and they may have some left over stock of that bag. http://www.radleyandco.com/#!stores/outlets The outlets get the last season stock and sell for quite a large discount. Good luck !
