Throw me in a universe where backpacks are not a thing and watch me loosing what’s left of my mind. It keeps getting better and today my obsession is fed by Radley London’s Maltby Street backpack in retro red.
I simply must confess though; for a person who deliberately chooses to not see the world as only black or white –even though I do love few things quite as well as that monochromatic Palse Homme check-board check blazer from a couple of seasons ago, I have been a tad too exacting with the belief that backpacks should never ever be messed with. I love all (most) types of bags and am open to newer interesting shapes and stuff, just not the legend knapsack that should be slung behind one’s shoulder blades with the (sensible) option of flinging two straps over and under one’s arms. I write this as a fashionpolitan unbiased and transformed.
Still keeping with the brand’s perfect blend of creative design, quality materials and immaculate craftsmanship; this backpack has me catching serious feelings. Straight out of the Radley London’s most recent A/W collection, the Malty Street features the supple Langton leather for a nonchalant vintage feel that only gets better with age.

I am always on the run. Like, literally! Okay, maybe not anything like Julia Roberts as Maggie Carpenter in that late 90’s hit of a movie. More like an individual whose entire existence has to balance a life constantly on the move and have to have many of my tools of trade with me at all times -thus my predestined crush on Radley London’s Grosvenor Medium Flapover Shoulder bag. Coming straight out of an attraction to sling bags bigger than big (because trust me, size doesn’t necessarily mean that things come easier to find – lesson I learned hesitantly) I am open to open to a stylish change of a reasonable size and this right here, may just be IT!
With classic craftsmanship and beautiful, naturally grained Harwood leather coupled with grosgrain lining at its core, the Grosvenor Medium Flapover Shoulder Bag has an adjustable shoulder strap and a full flap with magnetic closure. All the partitioned compartments inside and on the exterior of the bag are just enough to have all the necessities placed in an organised manner –like a grown-ass-human would.
An added bonus is a known fact that in its stylish and relaxed design, the sling bag is having a huge moment as the most versatile bag to have right now. One can be worn with almost everything really.
The Grosvenor Medium Flapover Shoulder bag is available at Stuttafords stores nationwide.
