Current / Classic: Luke Edward Hall

This week’s Current / Classic features my talented British friend, Luke Edward Hall. Luke recently left his post working for interior designer Ben Pentreath, to strike out on his own. A mind-bogglingly creative artist and designer, Luke is now busy collaborating with savvy brands like Parker Palm Springs and Drake’s London. His instagram also happens to be my favorite. Get to know Luke’s current and classic favorites below.

    Ania – I’ve only read Brideshead Revisted and seen the movie. I didn’t know there was a TV series until I read Luke’s answers?! There goes my weekend :)
