The One That Got Away
Each year we produce a small, limited number of iconic designs, inspired by someone or something that really matters to us. We hope each icon will carry a meaning for different generations; something that is precious and special to own and that will be passed down to be enjoyed for years to come.
The Stanley Bag
The Stanley celebrates the life of a remarkable woman, Angela Stanley. A wife, mother, businesswoman and charity worker whose love of fashion and travel so greatly inspired Gladstn London. She had a captivating, awe-inspiring ability to bring out the best in everyone she met and was never afraid to stand out from the crowd. In common with so many icons, hers was a life that was taken too soon but with richness in spirit making up for longevity. Angela had joie de vivre, never happier than when surrounded by good company and good conversation.
The Stanley Bag is a limited edition bag made in very small number. It offers you the rare opportunity to put your own stamp on it making it the ideal investment piece. The Stanley bags photographed here are the first two that were handcrafted and permission was given by their owners to show them. They have been uniquely constructed to the owners’ requirements in Crocodile and Python with Palladium and Rose Gold hardware.
Icon 1: The Stanley can be handcrafted in any material and made in a smaller size if required. Our design team will work with you to guide you on size, the materials of your preference and the hardware finishes as well as your ideal internal configuration that works for your every need.
