Les Valentines.

As part of our attempt to highlight designers worthy of notice, we’re trying something new… Designer profiles. Valentine Rémusat and George Luong of Les Valentines are the first we’re looking at. They’re graduates from Parsons The New School for Design. Brooklyn-based, the team have trained with Tse, Céline, Christophe Lemaire, Sonia Rykiel and Theory.

In the video above, they tell us how they began and give us their design philosophy.
