Today saw the press-day for Radley London’s AW14 collection. Against a backdrop of autumnal London with crunchy leaves underfoot, we left the sunny spring day outside to be transported past a summer we haven’t yet had into Octoberish. Bags in all hues of blue, green, brown, pink and red, hung from a bicycle, a bench, a phonebox and not one, but two front doors.
The new collection is fairly typical of Radley designs; classic in design with a British edge. I personally feel Radley does classic simplicity best and there is plenty of that for AW14. I’m struggling to choose between the Border large clutch and the Aldgate.
But best of all? Monty the real life Radley scottie, happily skipping and frolicking, clearly loving the crunchy leaves and attention.

I love the bright, unmissable colours of the Swiss Guard. Unlike our busby clad guards, these guys are fabulously polite and were more than happy to direct me on my merry way.
When I saw this woman walk past, I instantly fell in love. The colour of the dress was a perfect contrast with the grey Roman square whilst the shoes elegantly let the folds of fabric do all the work. Moments later we realised there was a large wedding taking place ahead and this woman seemed to be quite famous, striding through the swathes of paparazzi eager to capture her on their cameras.
