Accessories brand Radley London have announced an exciting new collaboration with Poldark actress Eleanor Tomlinson.
Not only are they launching The Eleanor Edit, a stylish collection of leather bags, but the actress is also the first brand ambassador for their Radley Spirit campaign.
Inspired by driven women who live life on their own terms, the Radley Spirit campaign reflects the bold women who wear their designs.
Justin Stead, CEO of Radley London explains, "Eleanor Tomlinson was a natural fit for Radley London, having been a long-standing fan of the brand. She also represents everything the new Radley Spirit campaign stands for: a confident, independent spirit who is not afraid to be herself, pushing boundaries within acting and her work outside of her profession.
"Eleanor also grew up in the country and has a special love for dogs, which is such an important core part of the Radley London DNA and another reason why we chose her for the ambassadorship."
The collection, made up of easy-to-wear bags crafted from Italian leather, include a saddle and hobo style bag as well as the hero Eleanor Bag – a cross body design that’s perfect for everyday.
Available in three different colourways (red, black and playful leopard print) and priced at £199, it’s an investment piece that you’ll get plenty of wear out of – season after season.
As the star of one of the nations most-loved shows and with her trademark red hair and milky porcelain complexion, it’s easy to see why Eleanor was the perfect choice for this quintessentially British brand.
But animal lover Eleanor was equally excited to be associated Radley.
She commented, "I’m thrilled to be Radley London’s brand ambassador! The collections are beautifully made, unique and always colourful, as well as accessibly priced. I’ve been a fan of the brand for many years and especially love their support for the care and wellbeing of dogs."
Priced from £199 to £209, shop The Eleanor Edit at Radley.co.uk from 10th February and pick up a bag in stores nationwide from 18th February.

She caught the magazine bug during a stint as Fashion Editor of her university newspaper alongside her English degree, and hasn’t looked back since. As for the fashion bug, that came as part and parcel of growing up in the 90s, but the less said about that the better!
Jess’ average day in the office is spent researching the latest fashion trends, chatting to industry tastemakers and scouring the internet to bring you this season’s must-buy pieces - as well as advice on how to wear them. Weekends are equally fashion-focused, and Jess has been known to visit no less than five Zara stores in a single day in search of the perfect occasion dress.
The only thing that comes close to a buzz of finally tracking down that much-coveted dress is the joy of discovering a new beauty wonder product or hero ingredient. A beauty obsessive, Jess has tried everything from cryotherapy to chemical peels (minus the Samantha in Sex and The City-worthy redness) and interviewed experts including Jo Malone and Trinny Woodall.
