Brooklyn-based designers Toni Hacker and Ben Harnett, a.k.a. Hayden-Harnett, unveiled their second stand-alone boutique last weekend: a pretty, 450-square-foot Nolita storefront filled with pick-me-up prints and the scent of leather. Apart from the label's signature bags, the shop is stocked with the duo's women's and shoe lines, outerwear, swimwear, as well as jewelry, and gifts, all artistically displayed on built-in racks and pristine white shelves. Spring apparel is feminine and offbeat: pale-pink jumpsuits, retro, high-waisted swimwear, and an array of breezy silk dresses accented by ruffles or braided sashes. Back shelves are reserved for the label's new range of shoes — cork wedges, studded sandals, and flashy color-block pumps are standouts — as well as impulse buys like Kobo scented soy candles (Portugese Olive, anyone?), luggage tags, clip-on bag tassels, and letterpress cards. Check out a few of our favorite items.
