You oughta know: Designers Hayden-Harnett
Who: Hayden-Harnett, a Brooklyn-based design team (Ben & Toni) who consistently put out unique accessories and clothes that won't detonate the debit card. Their looks are bohemian, but not in a precious Tory Burch way -- more the bags you would stumble upon at a bazaar in Turkey or a flea market in Paris.
Why: The color choices are bold and I dig their fixation with geometrics and interesting patterns. The Mosaique hobo (right, $450) makes my mouth water. And check out the oversized Floripa clutch ($427). They do limited edition runs of bags like the Beatrice satchel, (left, $590), which is a pattern by French textile artist Madame Paule Marrot.
What else: The duo also designs frocks, peacoats, capes, duffel bags and utterly awesome cuff bracelets that sell for less than $100 and are worthy of super heroines. Next up for the brand is a line of shoes. Word has it that Hayden-Harnett has been tapped for a Target Go collection, so now would be a good time to buy before they blow up big time.
