We had the good fortune of connecting with Lubens Ervil and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lubens, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
My vision when starting Legaxy was to become one of the most exclusive and notable luxury streetwear brands and also to create a new wave for black designers. Being that there are already so few black notable designers I wanted to create a new culture for other designers that came from the same background as me. That’s why I approach the fashion industry in such a unique way staying true to myself and my upbringing. Rap music had such a big influence on me growing up which is why I approach the fashion industry the way I do. I feel fashion and music go hand and hand. So I feel my brand Legaxy and also myself as a designer bring the two together. People call themselves Rockstars and one of my favorite artist Polo G calls himself a Rapstar I consider myself a real life Dripstar.

What should our readers know about your business?
Legaxy is a luxury streetwear clothing brand with its biggest influence being hip hop music, pop culture, and life’s biggest questions. I’ve overcome everything that was thrown at me to this point and will continue to persevere. I’ve learned along the way that art is too important not to share to the world. My goal with Legaxy is to become bigger then just fashion.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Probably go anywhere near the water so either the beach or on a boat. I don’t really have a favorite spot, I leave the planning to other people as long as the place is nice and the food is good I’ll be ok.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I give all my credit to The Most High by putting the right people around me and giving me such a great support system. Also I would like to give a shoutout to the late great Virgil Abloh his presence in the industry inspired me and gave me the courage to create my own brand. This is a path that I would not have been able to find on my own so I take none of the credit.
