Walking through Los Angeles each day we see the same clothes, same shoes, same handbags. Everyone has to have them and most of the designers take obvious queues from each other. So when I saw a woman carrying a quality bag I didn’t instantly recognize, I had to stop her and find out who made it and where I could get one. It turns out there are several places to get them on the west side.
Hayden-Harnett has made a lasting impressions with the use of exotic leathers, unique finishes, and classic fabrics. Their diversity of style makes them a draw for everyday wear and for designer bags. Company head Toni Hacker draws from her industrial design background to create contemporary and functional designer hand bags. This young ambitious company is primed for success. I must say, I’m sold. My personal fave is the Beatrice: $485.
