LUAR is the reversed namesake label of Williamsburg-based designer Raul Lopez, former co-founder of Hood By Air. Of Dominican descent, Raul began to design at the age of 12 and growing up was inspired by the downtown New York scene. Raul wanted to share this energy with his friends who lived in the uptown Washington Heights neighborhoods, where they would frequent Dominican clubs and parties. The philosophy of LUAR lies in the intersection of New York City and the Dominican Republic, promoting the constant curiosity of "tomorrow" or what's up next. Raul has no strict rules when designing; he keeps it unique, neutral in color, and gender fluid. Having been worn by the likes of Future, Kylie Jenner, Kendrick Lamar, Solange Knowles, Tyga, Theophilus London, LUAR currently retails at Opening Ceremony, Hard Candy, GR8 Tokyo and Radd Lounge. In 2018, Raul became a finalist for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
