LUCAS LECLÈRE

London-based womenswear designer Lucas Leclère, who hails from Burgundy, France, graduated this year from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. During Paris Couture Week in July, he premiered his first collection, of which he says, “It’s a French take on revolution and Britannia, inspired by the fact that although Great Britain is a monarchy, it’s nevertheless the place where most extreme cultures come from: punk, techno, and nu rave.”

What is your definition of romance?
Romance is when fire is cooler than the flame that burns inside.

If your collection were a person, on whom would he have a crush?
He would have a crush on girls or boys. He would engage in ménages à trois, à quatre, à cinq.

What would be his pick-up line?
He prefers actions to words. He would be inside you before you even had time to say, “I love you, too.”

Strap-on…
Hold on.

“True love waits”…
If that’s true, then true love doesn’t exist because waiting only gets you closer to death.

Jealousy…
Heresy.
