Luar is the reversed namesake label of Williamsburg-based Raul Lopez, co-founder of Hood By Air. The philosophy of the brand lies in the intersection of New York City and Dominican Republic. He began to design at the age of 12 and was inspired by the downtown New York scene he saw growing up.
‘Luar is for the culture. It’s for everyone’, says Raul Lopez.
Luar is known for Ana, an iconic bag named after many important women in Raul Lopez life. It has been seen on the arms of Dua Lipa before being available in stores. The bag is described as a luxury bag for those who can’t afford luxury by W Magazine.
