Limited Edition 2014 Tote bags

Full Gallery Of Totes Collection is sold on Radley Online here

Radley have released a stunning four piece limited edition collection. Away from Radley’s normal styles, we see four very vibrant and floral designs. The design style can be compared to similar design styles by Cath Kidston. What makes these special for collectors is that they are limited edition and what will please fans is they have a limited edition plaque inside the bag. They are not numbered 1-150 individually but they do state that they are 1 of 150.

Example of inside plaque:

Radley Limited edition Tag 2014

These very attractive bags also have 3 purses available to match the designs which will also please fans.  Some fans may feel the price tag is a little high for a tote bag, but these are limited edition and the price is reasonable as each bag is only 1 of 150 made,  and the fact these bags have a plaque makes it a winner every time.  We have been telling Radley for a long time how fans missed the plaques from the older Radley limited edition bags, as these are what helped these bags hold value and made them highly collectable to fans. We are very happy to see Radley listened to the fans, this will increase faith back into the brand for the hard core collectors out there.

In our opinion these bags will sell fast and go up in value very quickly. Fans love the limited edition tags and the floral design is right on trend for this season as we heard from Company Magazine at a recent Pandora event we attended.

So lets have a look at each bag and purse:

This bag is more feminine than we are used to with Radley. The floral design is right on trend for this season so we can see why Radley have used this. We love the rose and pinks used. In our opinion the handles would have looked better in a light pink/peach colour but this is the only part we can criticise.  For £209.00 its a bargain for a limited edition tote bag.

Radley Collector Says:

The peachy pink colour is right on trend for this summer. This tote reminds us of the successful British Heart Foundation bag because of the heart tag. Again no dog tag with the bag, which is a shame. Radley do state you can buy these separately but we do like to see a special dog tag especially on a limited edition bag. This bag is plain compared to the rest of the collection which we think is a nice idea, as not everyone likes the bold floral designs and this gives collectors who prefer a plain design to still buy a limited edition bag from this collection.

Radley Collector Says:

This has to be our favourite from the whole collection. We are fans of Cath Kidston and this reminds us of that floral flare. We love that Radley have put this bold design on a limited edition bag. The lines work great across the bag and the colours are perfect for this season. Again no dog tag which is a crying shame. A striped dog tag in these colours would have made this bag perfect.

Radley Collector Says:

Finally we find a Radley Dog tag on one of the bags from this limited Edition collection!  This makes us happy. It is a shame there isn’t one on every bag but at least we have one on the Radley Willow bag from the Radley Gallery Of Totes Collection. This bag is the second plainest out of all four but the colours again work very well. The dog tag has tassels which fans tend to love as it makes the dog tag more eye catching. This bag seems perfect for a holiday as the colours just make us think of sun, sand and sea without being a direct beach scene.

OK, lets now have a look at the purses from the Radley Gallery of Totes Collection. The purses are not limited editions like the bags but we do love that Radley made the effort to make a matching purse as sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect match other than basic colour.

There are currently 3 purses listed on the Radley website; Mitford, Rosemary and Willow. There is not one listed to match the Darling Tote Bag.

Radley Collector Conclusion

We love Limited Edition Radley bags. Its what got us started on collecting Radley and then what got us making this Radley Fansite. What we love even more is the numbered Radley Limited edition bags. Now yes this isn’t numbered individually e.g. bag 1 or bag 27 out of 150 but at least Radley listened to the fans and did this much. The only downside for us is there is not a Radley dog tag on every bag. This is very important to fans as they are as much in love with the iconic Dog Tag that hangs from their bag as they are with the brand. The floral patterns we just love and as mentioned before it’s the trend for this season.  Everywhere is doing it and carrying one of these bags or having it on display with your other Radleys, it is going to be a true centre piece. It’s a must buy for us !

    Hi as a vegetarian I don’t want a leather bag but absolutely love the bags with dogs on so is there any chance that Radley can make just a few bags for all the animal lovers out there.
    Best wishes Maureen
