Art, Design and Instagram sensation. Do you know you know Luke Edward Hall? Think twice.

Luke studied menswear fashion design at Central Saint Martins in London before spending two years working for an interior designer here in London.
In 2015, He set up his own studio and now he work across a broad range of projects: from drawing, and painting to producig ceramics and fabrics.
Luke describes himself as an artist, designer and dreamer. A day on his busy life goes like this: he usually heads to his studio first thing in the morning (which is a ten minute ride on a bicycle from his apartment in North London). Right after, he checks his diary and notes and run through his current projects and look at which ones need attention.
As a young entrepreneur he is, he usually has at least ten projects on at once: he needs to be organised. It is likely, that the rest of the day He keeps painting ceramics or working on artwork for an exhibition or sketching ideas for a collaboration. “I take regular breaks to look through my library of books – something might capture my eye and spark a new idea“, he states.
“Clients come to me via many different routes. Sometimes they’ll find me on Instagram, or by word of mouth, or they’ll have seen my work in an exhibition or online.”
Luke’s favorite fashion relies on vintage clothes mixed up with a colourful shirt or piece of knitwear from one of his favourite designers such as Gucci, Prada or Dries van Noten. He also enjoys getting suits made by a tailor in New York called F.E. Castleberry.
“Colour and pattern is very important to me – I don’t own any black clothes.”, Luke replies.
London is the city I know most well of course, because I’ve lived here for ten years. But I love Paris – it’s much more romantic. And I’m a huge romantic.
When it comes to dinnertime, the best of his plans would be having friends over: cooking is never a bad idea. For a fun night out, some of the IT choices include The River Cafe or Quo Vadis for dinner and 5 Hertford Street for a nightcap.
Luke spends a lot of time in Italy, his favourite place to visit. In the summer, he often heads to Naples, the Amalfi Coast and Capri. Although this year he went to the island of Ponza which is close to Rome.
I have quite a few exciting projects coming up and my plan is to concentrate on those for the time being. I’ll be opening more exhibitions of my drawings and paintings too – the next one will be in Seoul, South Korea, in the springtime next year!
