German born Lutz moved to London, England, to enter the fashion design course of Central Saint Martins. Whilst still a student, he was featured in “i-D magazine” with photographs by his childhood friend Wolfgang Tillmans.
Upon graduating with a first class degree, Lutz moved to Paris in 1995. Here, he would take on the role of assisting Martin Margiela for 3 years, where he was in charge of the knitwear and artisanal lines.
Two-time winner of the Andam prize, he decided to launch his eponymous brand with his partner David Ballu in 2000.
