Radley Border 2013.

As we are nearing the end of the Radley 2013 SS ranges and begin to think about the cross over to AW 2013 Radley have looked back into their archives and updated a classic Radley style. Its heritage all the way for this collection.  Border was originally released in 1998 as briefcases and  rucksacks . A handbag range was then created from this range and appeared in collections across the years.

Today we are going to show you Radley Border from 1998 , some examples of Radley Border through the years and Radley’s new collection of Border that is on sale now for 2013.

Radley Border 2013

The new line is made from luxurious soft leather, and is very similar to the older styles but the leather is textured unlike some previous incarnations of Border.  The design is a classic shape and is very functional while looking stylish at the same time.

It’s easy to tell between the different versions of the bags, The 2004 versions have the older style Radley tag inside, and metal zip pulls inside. The 2008 version had a newer metal Radley tag inside and leather zip pulls. The newest version has yet another style of the Radley tag inside and the leather zip pulls are cut to a point instead of squared off.

Radley Collector Says :

Border was always a popular design, and with 2013’s reinvention of the line, with the new type of textured leather and the new dog tag, this line really shows the direction the company is taking, looking to the past but chasing the future.  The Border range has a timeless appeal and is practical enough for everyday use. We love how Radley never forget their heritage or what made Radley the brand it is today. They move with the times but never forget what got them where they are today. Fans love the older ranges revamped. It gives them the designs they loved but with a new edge. We look forward to Radley looking at their heritage more over the next few months and as they move into their AW collections.
