Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos called on their personal history for their new Leroy & Perry label.
The pair, who is better known for its Lutz & Patmos knitwear, met in 1995 while designing a private label collection for Barneys New York. They were twentysomethings living in West Village walk-ups, biking to get around the city, sharing their wardrobes and recycling purely for the sake of conservation. Their former selves serve as the models for Leroy & Perry's targeted customers.
