Factoriem Showcases Emerging Designers and Young Artists

After working as an assistant designer for Richard Chai and TSE, Binna Lee decided to open her own boutique featuring a rotating selection of fashion and art, as well as select pieces from her own jewelry line. The store’s name, Factoriem, comes from Lee’s own interest in garment factories and the craftsmanship that goes into producing clothes. In her narrow, industrial space, Lee carries pieces that range from dresses by Alexander Berardi to lesser-known names like Wakana Koike, a Japanese designer whose spring line focuses on bold, bright prints. There are also accessories and random objects, like the assorted mixed-materials teddy bears made by a recent Parsons grad, which help to give the store a quirky, eclectic feel. Right now, many of Factoriem’s original summer pieces are on sale, so it’s a perfect time to head over and check out the goods.
