I went into Debenhams to buy a birthday handbag for my Mum,. Previously all the women in every generation of my family had liked radley bags, for the quality, leather and attractive quirky designs. I was totally shocked by the cheap nylon bags on offer under Radley's name.
It looks as though they are designing down to a price, perhaps due to the recession,using cheap fabrics instead of good leather. Unless Debenhams will only take cheap bags from them?
The lady browsing the display beside me pointed out that they have not even put Radley the dog tags on them this year. She did not buy one either.
