As the owner of Denver-based boutique Goldyn, I come across new designers both big and small, international and local, on a regular basis. After a lot of scouring and dutiful research, there are a handful of local labels we’ve picked up over the years that I really feel have the talent to make it big. It’s truly inspiring to see what has sprouted out of our own backyard! I thought I’d spotlight a few of our favorites here at Goldyn that our fellow Denverites may be new to…
Greg Garman’s collection Cartel Noir hits the mark with ultra-flattering, minimalist designs in a simple black and white color palette.
Sisters Shawn Hecox and Samantha Hitchcock started their fine jewelry collection The Woods out of a love for contrasts: organic and luxe, rough and smooth. With rough cut diamonds set in oxidized silver, antique charms, and wood, bone and pyrite beading, The Woods offers truly understated luxury and handmade craftsmanship in all of their unique pieces.
Handbag designer extraordinaire Dana Van Daele makes a collection of colorful clutches and totes using locally sourced leathers. These high quality bags really make a statement, even when paired with just jeans and atee.
