The 149th Kentucky Derby, the annual horse race held in Louisville, Kentucky, United States will be on May 6th and taking place at Churchill Downs. For the fourth year in a row, Radley London, the British handbag and accessories brand, is the Official Handbag Licensee for the Kentucky Derby.
The brand has launched the Radley London x Kentucky Derby Official Licensee Collection with designs that are inspired by the “Run for the Roses” and are exclusively available in the US. The Radley London x Kentucky Derby Official Licensee Collection features special-edition handbags and wallets designed with artisan-crafted details.
This year’s collection incorporates a great neutral color palette that will go with any Derby fit. Radley London wanted to celebrate the Kentucky Derby rose by adding it as a charm. The construction of it is very intricate with hand painted edges on each of the leather petals.
The bags horse illustrations are something Radley London do every year, not just to celebrate the race but also because they know how much their customers love them. They also like to use bridle-inspired hardware on their racing collections, which you’ll find across some of the bags in their new Spring collection too.
Radley London creates functional and fashionable handbags, wallets, footwear, and more to elevate day-to-day style, with mini collections to make seasonal moments extra special. Recent mini-collection offerings have included Lunar New Year, Valentine’s Day, and now the Kentucky Derby.
Radley London’s Kentucky Derby mini-collection is available NOW, which means you can carry a little bit of Radley London style to Louisville (or wherever you’ll be celebrating). And an extra plus, they are also within size regulations for attending the event in person.
All items are available on the brand site for $98-328 here: https://www.radleylondon.com/collections/kentucky-derby.
