Part of an elite group of designers, rapidly expanding in the CFDA Incubator, Luis Fernandez and business partner Greg Lawrence are taking menswear onto athletically tailored ground in their brand, NUMBER:Lab. Designer/Creative Director Fernandez came from the field of architecture, and is applying his knack for building beautiful and functional structures to address his own frustrations with men’s fashion. “We couldn’t find clothes that fit well and still addressed those needs of performance and quality, and not at haute couture prices,” Luis explains. So with technologically advanced textiles, meticulous math, and a keen aesthetic, men now have options away from the three-piece-suit.
