Muddy says: What woman doesn’t love a luxury handbag. And when it’s affordable luxury you know you’ve hit the jackpot.
RI2K London specialises in producing handcrafted handbags in fine, full grain leathers each with a discreet signature hardware.
There’s a real mix of trend-driven and timeless designs – I want the Barnsbury Tote bag badly.
Launched by the renowned English fashion designer John Richmond in the year 2000 – RI2K geddit!! – its first shop was in Soho’s Newburgh Street, smack bang in the middle of London’s bohemian quarter where punks, mods and new romantics once clustered. Several leading department stores also stocked the RI2K range.
The brand went quiet for a couple of years – but it’s now back with a vengeance and is worn by classy, stylish and empowering women including Pippa Middleton and, um, moi!
Our faves this season? The Barnsbury Tote in hoody grey and the Reiyn Chain Tote in black. Gorgeous and affordable.
