To celebrate Pride 2021, British handbag and accessories brand Radley London has partnered with LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall and designed a limited edition reversible tote bag.
In addition, Radley London is also excited to announce that Lady Phyll, co-founder of UK Black Pride and the CEO of Kaleidoscope Trust, will be the brand’s Woman of Spirit ambassador for Pride Month.
The exclusive Beach Close Pride large canvas tote is fully reversible, with an iconic rainbow print stripe design on one side and the Radley London logo in the Pride rainbow colours on the other.
The brand stands with Stonewall in their fight so “everyone of every identity is free to be proud, free to love, free to be wrong, free to be anything, free to be together.”
Anthony Baigent, Senior Community and Partnerships Officer at Stonewall, said: “Stonewall is delighted to be working with Radley London on the creation of the statement bag to celebrate Pride this June and sure it’ll be a sell-out!
“We’d like to thank all customers purchasing the Pride bag for the significant contribution their donations will make towards creating real change for lesbian, gay, bi and trans people.”
Radley London’s Woman of Spirit for June is Lady Phyll as she fully embodies what it means to be a Woman of Spirit ambassador.
Lady Phyll has spent her life building safe spaces and communities for LGBTQ+ people of colour. Tirelessly campaigning against racism, homophobia, sexism and discrimination.
Her hope for the future is “to live in a world where there’s no longer a need for Pride or Black Pride and where everyone of every community is accepted.”
Lady Phyll commented: “Activism runs in my blood. I am born of warrior women and I am here to claim space for myself and others like me.
“Black Pride is Black joy. It’s an unapologetic enjoyment in ourselves, our cultures, and our potential.”
Radley London’s Woman of Spirit campaign celebrates and supports women who are working to make a real difference in the world: the leaders of tomorrow, the freethinkers, the voices for change that inspire us every day and to created a community of inspiring and empowering yet relatable women – by telling the stories of real-life heroes to champion communities and provide them with a platform to amplify their voice.
