Marijn-Bennett Hand-Knits & Aki Kano Bags at Diana Kane in Park Slope Brooklyn with Ariel Clay

Ariel Clay reports on a few of her favorite fashion finds from Diana Kane boutique's trunk show in Park Slope, Brooklyn, this past weekend:
 Marijn-Bennett hand-knit braid accessories available at Diana Kane

I love these chunky hand-knit scarf necklaces by Brooklyn's Megan Noonan of Marijn-Bennett. Locally handcrafted from soft wool, these 'braided neck warmers' will add a pop of color and texture to any basic winter outfit. Megan is focused on small-scale production at this stage, but we hope to see more from this talented and creative knitter. Her one-of-a-kind creations typically include materials such as wool, alpaca, mohair, and cashmere. 

Aki Kano leather bags were also one of my favorite finds and with the byline of 'made in NYC with love and integrity', what's not to love. These hobo bags are lightweight, soft to the touch, and so easy to wear.

 I especially adored this tie-dyed, slouchy 'Mari Hobo' bag. 

We also love that designer Aki Kano expresses her creative side 
with these hip paintings as well

Follow updates on Diana Kane's events and sale specials via her blog. Sustainable designers such as Prairie Underground, Stewart + Brown, Loomstate, and other local talents are available at her fashion and handcraft outpost in Park Slope.
