“Our heritage is uniquely British, with a modern sensibility,” said Francois-Olivier Luiggi, General Manager of Langham Place, Fifth Avenue. “It made total sense to us to invite Richard James, a contemporary, of-the-moment Savile Row tailor and suit designer, to spend a week with us during their bi-annual New York visit. We hope our guests will enjoy this unique access to one of the most well-respected tailors in the world.”
"We're known for what the style press call our ‘modern classic' approach to Savile Row tailoring, so Langham Place, Fifth Avenue was the natural choice to be our New York residency partner," said Sean Dixon, Founder and Managing Director of Richard James.
