If there were a time to venture to Berkeley, it would be now. 1809B Fourth Street to be exact. Amidst the promenade, lives sustainable clothing and accessory boutique, Convert. They do innovative eco things and the latest involves LA-based shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell and dead-stock fabrics.
Chan Luu is on her way to becoming a household name. The world-renowned Vietnam-born, L.A.-based jewelry designer already has a cult following and counts Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga, Kate Hudson and many more as her loyal clients. Best known for fusing her artistic skill with unusual forms and beautiful colors, Luu creates striking, handmade pieces that exemplify effortless chic. Last night, she unveiled her exclusive, limited edition 17-piece collection of signature wrap bracelets for Banana Republic's Edition store. The line is available only at this San Francisco outpost until August, when it will be released online and to more than 40 stores nationwide. We had the chance to chat with Luu during the big debut about jewelry, culture and the Bay Area's best.
