unexpected mix of leather and wool. I got this Bensoni Capelet before the holiday and am really into the a-line cut, silver hardware, and long tiered leather sleeves – which make the piece both super unique and sort of timeless.
Bensoni’s a pretty young brand out of New York… it was started by students at Parsons: Ben and Sonia. The brand is all about mixing fabrications and unusual sources of inspiration. They won Parson’s “Designer of the Year” award in 2007 and are definitely a duo to follow.
