Anyone who eagerly follows collection reviews will agree that those penned by Luke Leitch for Vogue Runway deliver a highly satisfying, never predictable summation of the experience – whether his incisive sense of how designers tick, or a laugh-out-loud comment on the crowd. As a contributing editor to the site, based between London and Milan, he is among the most prolific and readable voices in fashion journalism.
► A Take on Fashion : Luke Leitch ◄ “We were looking for a name to express our way of working, the research, the experimentation, the development around various themes. Ten years later, each one of us has a different role; we know what we have to do. We have always approached fashion work in a global way; we are close to the world of architecture, music – whether through collaborations with artists, or book publishing. José (Larmali) works on the collections, I work on the image and peripheral projects, and Jérémy (Egry) is the bridge between the two,” explains Aurélien Arbet.
