Every man knows, to feel good you have to look good. Men are spending more time on their appearance and how we present ourselves at work, in our social and home lives has become so much more important.
If you have ever seen Gok Won parading around your high street or on the TV, you will know men should not neglect accessories. Particularly the wallet, belt, watch and all important man bag.
Imagine our excitement when we discovered Radley had just launched a new men’s line. After more than 13 years of crafting beautiful handbags and accessories for women around the world Radley has listened to the callings of men and decided to move into the men’s market.
Here’s Elysium Magazine’s top picks from the stunning collection:
A casual collection inspired by festivals but with a luxury twist, the Banbury is for a man who prefers a cool and relaxed wardrobe. Using nappa leather to create that graininess suitable for the outdoors, it features handcrafted x whip stitching down the front to resemble a weave and antique brass hardware to bring together the whole theme, while bright red internal compartments bring that splash of uniqueness. The collection is available in chocolate brown and ginger tan.
Inspired by AW11’s Regalia trend, Belvedere is designed for the refined and sophisticated gentleman. Created using smooth mid-shine leather to produce its formal look, it features handcrafted x whip stitching on the corners of the lower piping as shown on the fronts of each bag. The choice of brightly coloured hanging tags helps bring out each man’s personality. The Belvedere range is available in black and chocolate brown.
Lightweight, durable and smart, The Hampton range is inspired by travel. Created with smooth SL leather and combined with smart nylon to give it a contemporary modern, sporty feel. Each piece features handcrafted whip stitching on the front of the straps and the sides of the shoulder holder to give it a subtle but decorative touch. The collection is available in black with matching leather trim or grey with a brown leather trim.
The brand prides itself on its British heritage, original design and creative craftsmanship, which is perfectly captured in the new Man range. Key detailing includes classic whip stitching, contrast coloured luggage tags and brightly coloured leather trims, resulting in a collection of fashion led, timeless designs which are available in rich leathers where the quality is exceptional and contemporary fabrics.
