This is probably not the wisest thing for an editor to admit, but I had never heard of Henry Beguelin until I started receiving notices in my in box about new arrivals at the store in Victory Park. Shame on me, because I had no idea what I was missing. (For example, these super-fly, open-toe, lace-up, sling-back booties.) The brand traces its roots back to the 1980s, on the island of Elba, where a group of friends assembled belts and bags using natural cowhide and recycled materials. The line now includes much more than belts and bags, of course–from shoes to cashmere knitwear to furniture and other home decor–but the commitment to hand-crafting luxurious, timeless pieces remains. So check out the latest shipment for fall. I can just smell the leather.
