Style.com tells the uncommon success story of Les Aperizes, a less-than-a-year-old line from LA couple Laurence Nguyen and Brian Tamborello that's already been picked up at Barneys. "Nguyen, who hails from Double RL and Levi’s, and Tamborello, who was a drummer for the Psychic Ills, chalk up the brand’s quick success to its 'masculine/feminine point of view.'" Tamborello and Nguyen are thinking of opening a store in LA in the near future. [Style]
