LGN LOUIS GABRIEL NOUCHI
Just five years ago, he created his own brand with three initials, his: LGN. In 2021, Louis-Gabriel Nouchi opened his own boutique on rue Oberkampf in Paris, where the fitting room is nothing more than a library. The design studio is just above. Immersion, sartorial introspection that is increasingly shared: 50% of the clientele is now female. Behind the black facade, the books are arranged anonymously, sliced upside down: a way for everyone to make them their own, in the surprise of a discovery. Murakami, Camus, Kafka, Yourcenar, are among the favourite authors of Louis Gabriel Nouchi, a former student of La Cambre, who began his career at Vogue, then at Raf Simons.► Hands Up: Touchingly Yours with Louis-Gabriel Nouchi ◄
