Stephen also runs 81Lucks, an apparel brand with an interesting twist…here’s some more information…
We’ve all been there, overhearing someone say Mosheeno, Hermez, Gevinchee or realising you’ve been saying Loewe as Low or Loway or Lowee and certainly not Loweveh…
After many years in the luxury industry enjoying how certain brands were often miss-pronounced Stephen Humphries, Creative Director and Co-Founder at 81Agency, decided to put the record straight whilst having a bit of fun at the same time.
Originally @81lucks was simply a playful Instagram channel but after getting lots of love from fashion fans and luxury lovers out there he decided to turn it into the apparel brand it is today.
They have a classic early 90s minimal style and currently specialise in tees & sweatshirts with each brands’ logo in a signature black or multi-colour edition.
