LERROS is made for men who know what they want. Who don’t confuse self-confidence with self-expression. Who looks good in every situation and want to feel just as good too. Every day. This was our philosophy when we started in Neuss in 1979 – and today we are at home in over 30 countries
The new and innovative brand within the LERROS-Group is NEW IN TOWN based on Urban Style:
In 2016 a couple of guys from the Rhineland had had enough. They wanted to wear modern clothes without having to pay a small fortune for them.
And they no longer liked the fact that almost all the pieces that had a reasonable fit looked like they came from Grandad’s wardrobe. They wanted affordable fashion that is new and contemporary, and that you can also fit into when you are a perfectly normal modern man. NEW IN TOWN was born.
NEW IN TOWN is looking for a designer, with profound experience from men´s wear, who can develop the brand further based on design, trend, and a commercial angle. Secondly the designer is responsible for creating the brand DNA in cooperation with the Product Manager and the rest of the design team.
You will be a part of developing a ”Design Lab” and work with quality and details, including fabrics, and you should be able to work independently. You will have time to “nerd and geek” with the collections ( 2 main collections + 1 summer capsule), because quality, design, and fashion is key.
