Hayden Harnett is launching a line of shoes this Spring 09, as reported through their blog. The Brooklyn-based handbag (and now clothing) designers, known by fans as just 'Toni and Ben' (sigh, Greenpoint) have made quite a business for themselves. That is, the line is stocked at Nordstorm and Anthroplogie and their customers fit rightly between those two worlds. The Spring 09 shoe line will consist of nine styles and range from simple flats to over-the-knee boots. Is this a reverse Loeffler Randall? Seem so. We're guessing that if you're a contemporary brand working with leather (a very difficult material to keep cost-effective) you're much more able to spout out a shoe line in one day than a contemporary clothing brand. Here's to working smart and a new line of shoes to look forward to. A Hayden Harnett shopping fix, as always, included.
