Allude & Friends: Marcus Luft, Fashion Director of GALA

M arcus Luft is a man with (fashion) principles. As deputy editor-in-chief and fashion director of "Gala" magazine and co-editor of "Gala Men", he knows the industry like no other and is also a sought-after and experienced author for style topics and brand portraits. Since 2007, he has been guiding the fashion fortunes of the successful star and lifestyle magazine with a flair for trends and great determination. Here he confidently answers our curious questions:

My first fashion memory:
Brown sandals that my mother used to bring me from Italy. Super stylish - but unfortunately they were considered "girls' shoes" at school.

I would describe my style like this:
Classic, but implemented in a modern way.

My styling trick is:
Invest in some statement pieces! You can perfectly combine basics with it and always look casual.

The most important rule in my own style guide:
Men shouldn't wear crazy shoes.

My favorite trend in summer and winter:
I like mint tones in summer and think it's radically right that winter should go for black.

And this is how I would wear these trends:
Mint only works in minimal doses for men. I haven't gone all black in a long time, but I'm looking forward to it.

My favorite piece from the Allude Autumn/Winter 2015/2016 collection:
Definitely the off-white looks, especially the chiffon skirt with graphic appliqués. Very modern and (!) wearable.

Best style advice I've ever received:
"Never follow fashion!" (Carine Roitfeld)

As a stylist/fashion editor, I couldn't live without:
Guess what? The fashion of course!

My style icon:
Hedi Slimane.

The top 3 websites in my browser bookmarks:
Those pages of our special, which will be going to press soon.

A song that always makes me dance immediately:
Basically, I don't dance.
