The menswear version of fashion week, London Collections: Men SS 2015 was rocking Savile Row last night – pulling the capital’s chicest crowds, including the hedge fund industry’s most fashionable figure, Pierre Legrange.
He was helping his partner Roubi L’Roubi host a special Gregory Peck exhibition at their bespoke tailors Huntsman, but was keen to divert attention towards Roubi.
“It’s been a great night. But I’m just here as a wife. It’s Roubi’s business,” he told The Capitalist, beaming.

Why the tie-up between Huntsman and Hollywood legend Gregory Peck? Well, the tailors produced many suits for Peck throughout his career including one of the outfits he wore in his Oscar-winning portrayal of Atticus Finch, in To Kill a Mockingbird.
Seamlessly blending the themes of Hollywood and business was Warner Bros’ UK chief Josh Berger.
“Pierre is a new friend of mine and the Pecks are old friends so this is a wonderful meeting of worlds for me,” he told The Capitalist. "I've never actually visited one of these old-school tailors before, it's really interesting."
