LGN’s collection “THE SKIN” takes place during the liberation of Napoli by the US army in 1943. Entering in a new cycle of inspirations based on the iconic Italian writer, Curzio Malaparte. The collection is a message based on the book imagery. A message of love, coming for peace in this amount of violence.

The color palette is based on the antic Italian city and military details adding functions to classic 1940’s Tailoring. Grunge details, signature of LGN, are distilled into raw edges, destroyed sleeves and hem.

LGN was founded in Paris in 2017 by Louis Gabriel Nouchi. Trained at l’Ecole des Arts Visuels de la Chambre, he began working for Vogue and Raf Simons. His work has earned it a nomination at the Hyères Festival in 2014, where he was awarded the Camper and Palais de Tokyo Prizes. Now widely recognized for his commercial and creative ability, LGN has launched capsule collections with Galeries Lafayette, la Redoute, Damart and more recently for the honored French luxury accessories brand, Agnelle.
