Haute Handbags: It’s All in the Radley for Fall 2010

There is undoubtedly an intimate connection between a girl and her handbag which keeps the industry at a multi-billion a year trade. And for many reasons. For one functionality. Like a security blanket, we carry them day in and day out. They hold our possessions, our wallets, phones, keys and we trust them. Another is quality. We are proud of them, whether its brand status symbol recognition, the craftsmanship of fine detailing, or the luxe treatment of leather.

Haute Living's Sabrina Chapman with Radley AW 2010 Handbag

I recently was introduced to Radley handbags by my dear friend Michelle Jimanez, a girl who is always on the pulse of trends in NYC. The quality, the fine detailing and the intimate approach of Radley makes it simply the ultimate Haute handbag for fall.

Here’s why… First, Radley handbags are functional with pockets and zippers in all the right places. The pockets are discrete and easy to access. Second, detailing. A handbag should excite you for new reasons daily. The leather of a Radley is ultra soft and feels amazing against bare skin. There is also this little dog theme, not the obnoxious in your face kind, but the sweet one that evokes nostalgic emotions.

Radley reaches the height of a status symbol. Not due to an oversized brand label stuck on second rate design, but because it’s well made, stitched beautifully and the hardware is simply exquisite. And the lining, well it’s like an exciting surprise every time you open your handbag.
