Luar (Raul spelled in reverse) is Raul Lopez's latest fashion project following his 2006 breakthrough when he co-founded Hood By Air. While the brand is New York-based, Raul is of Dominican descent and describes Laur as the intersection of New York City and the Dominican Republic. Since Hood By Air, Raul has been known for his fashion-forward philosophy and design. Continuing his thirst for innovative and provocative designs, Raul rocketed Luar to international recognition with the now signature Ana bag and its iconic oversized circular top handles. Ushering into a new generation, Luar is shaping up to be the new American name in fashion.
