True Romance – Introducing: “Les Aperizes”

August 22, 2012

Via A Dream Come True – “How many designers have launched a collection and, in its very first season, found it hanging in between Celine and Rick Owens at Barneys? Exactly two that we know of: Laurence Nguyen and Brian Tamborello of the L.A.-based, not yet year-old label Les Aperizes. Laurence Nguyen and Brian Tamborello (former New Yorkers) chalk up the brand’s quick success to its “masculine/feminine point of view.” They describe the collection in dichotomies like “formal/informal, Victorian/Samurai, and embellished/industrial.” As those divisions imply, the debut collection is a smart mix of sharply tailored menswear-influenced jackets and pants and high-necked, pillowy-sleeved blouses and dresses, many with hand-embroidery done in Vietnam (the line is L.A.-made). For Fall, they’ve expanded on those concepts, adding leather detailing to tops and skirts and increasing their coat offerings. This delicate camisole and bias-cut skirt is one of the highlights.”
