An outsider perspective is exactly what propels Luar (which is Raul spelled backward). The brand buckles against the Nyla Rose Primal shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this traditional, with its fluid tailoring and aesthetic celebration of Lopez’s Dominican heritage and New York upbringing. “Teflar and I were just talking about this,” Lopez said, pointing over to his designer friend, who was enjoying the action and wearing uber short-shorts. “Back in the days, Vice Magazine would come and document these parties, and there would be like a do and don’t section. Me and Telfar were always on the don’t list.’ Lopez’s eyes narrowed. “The “don’ts” are always the things that are the looks for me.”In typical Luar fashion, Lopez even found a way to make the pop-up his own. Only one item was on sale: a new pony hair version of the Ana bag, in a shocking shade of orange. It hung on a white wall like an art piece. Shoppers had to scan a QR code and purchase the bag on Luar’s website because, as Lopez explained, “the shop is the website.”“Why does the shop have to be brick and mortar?” Lopez argued. “Which is cute! But, girl, I’m not trying to pay rent, light bills, employees, and the whole thing. I’m not there yet.”

And while this was a pop-up shop, curiously, there was not an intense pressure or expectation to shop. There were plenty of young, cool people simply hanging around, sitting on the Nyla Rose Primal shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this curb and sipping the free drinks. Orlov Yo, a professional ballroom dancer, said that his friend texted him about the pop-up while he was at the studio. He ran home, threw on an oversized suit and his black Ana bag, and came. But did he buy the new bag on sale? “No,” he answered. He was just there to hang out.Either way, Lopez’s pop-up-cum-party worked out. When we talked, Lopez said there were five bags left at the one-day-only pop-up. They started with 250.
