Radley London announces its third year as a licensee of The Kentucky Derby with an exciting new collection with new styles just in time for the social event of the season. Through the modern lens of fashion, this collaborative capsule elevates the rich, historic traditions of the Kentucky Derby.
The Radley design team draws inspiration from ‘They joy of the day’ as well as the equestrian theme and the heritage of the event. The collection gives nods to nostalgia and the fun of the races with joyful hand drawn illustrations combined with craft details and a spring color palette.
“The decision to use a more graphic, hand-drawn horse was to give depth to the collection and add an element of modernism against the sketchy illustration” says Senior designer, Sally Hansen, on the inspiration behind the design.
In celebration of the signature Kentucky Derby cocktail, the mint julep, the brand welcomes new unmissable shades including sweet pastels, energized cucumber, and a pop of mango running throughout the collection.
The collection includes various styles like a charming canteen bag, a reinvented, modern satchel bag, a classic quilted style, as well as wallets and small leather goods.
