The Skinny Zipper Jean (below) has zipper details on the pockets that instantly edge up your look.

The Unknown Factory is amazingly crafted line of denim designed by French-born, Eli and Moshe Azran. The two brothers started extremely young working in the denim industry. Eli with 575, Taverniti, and Neo in his teens, and Moshe with Yanuk and Taverniti. Neither is over the age of 22! Wow! They believe that denim should be fresh and effortless, and compliment a woman, not overpower her. Their premium line consists of classic jeans with European influences and a fashion-forward twist.

Designer of the Week: Chan Luu

Designer Chan Luu pictured with her doggy:)
Halle Berry featured in People Magazine wearing Chan Luu's wrap bracelets.
Our favorite: layered
Chan Luu moved from Vietnam in 1972 where she was born and raised, to attend school in Boston, MA. She later relocated to LA to pursue her design dreams at FIDM.
After graduation, she started with her own Boutique. While loving what she was doing, she knew deep down that she had to follow her true passion of being a designer. And so she did.
She now has an immensely successful line bearing her name that is adored by celebrities and fans all over the world.
We are obsessed with her amazingly soft and luxurious silk/cashmere scarves, and of course, her beautifully colorful and unique jewelry.
