Will Hardy ever slow down? The 52-year-old designer’s creations are a favorite among fashion die-hards, so it’s hardly a surprise that he spent this year giving them more and more. He continued to expand his eponymous line with bigger men’s and women’s handbag collections, and also broadened the selection of women’s boots. And whether he is sending printed jersey scarf booties down Balenciaga’s runway or designing shearling-and-suede boots for Gap, Hardy’s shoes are always a hit — something he’s been doing consistently for the last decade. To celebrate his 10-year anniversary, the designer threw a major party during Paris fashion week at his Marais showroom, boasting a guest list that included top editors, buyers and the world’s preeminent fashion insiders. Hardy anticipates opening stores during 2010, with a focus on flagship locations in New York and London.
