We asked Luke a few questions to get to know him better. Keep up with the discussion through #HSstreetstyle.

Tell us a bit about yourself. What do you do?

I work at size? HQ, overseeing all things social media.

How old are you? What do you want to do in the future?

I’m 24. I have a law degree and planned to specialise in intellectual property and design rights. Throughout my degree I worked at size?, and once I completed it, I made the decision to opt for sneakers over silk. It has been amazing to grow up alongside my favorite brand, and playing an active role makes it even better.

What are your favourite brands and designers?

I’ve always appreciated both the story and the process, so for me, Stone Island prides itself on both. I also love Teddy Santis’ brand Aime Leon Dore and his whole aesthetic as well as Rav’s (Clothsurgeon) premium take on streetwear and his re-inventing of iconic silhouettes.

Describe your style. Where do you get your inspiration from?

I like to layer monochrome, minimal streetwear with tailored, clean-cut outerwear. I’m inspired by an element of everything. I couldn’t really fall within one category; my style crosses over many.

Who is your all time number one style icon?

Tommy Shelby.

What’s your one item of clothing you’d never give up?

I had a vintage Levi’s denim jacket re-made for me about five years back and it’s the ultimate layering piece.

What started your interest in fashion and style?

I couldn’t actually pinpoint one moment, but I’ve always been into both footwear and fashion for as long as I can remember. Growing up I used to love going round outlets and trawling the forums.

Where’s your favourite place to go shopping?

My favourite store is Dover Street Market. No question.

What’s your number one fashion rule?

If you like it, then that’s all that matters.

Now see what two of Nike Football's top designers are wearing.
