President and co-owner
It’s with his passion for fashion and design and a knack for business that Luc began his career by creating the ultra-chic line of men’s underwear, Lùk by Luc Laroche, in the early 90’s; where he spent more than 14 years as Creative and Marketing Director. He then moved on to work for major brand names; first as Creative Director for Canadian company Château Lingerie and subsequently as North America’s Communication Manager as well as Canada’s Operation’s Director for the Spanish brand Mango. He then chose to pursue his career with Tommy Hilfiger, in New York City, where he spent two years as Vice-President of specialty retail operations for North America.
Back in Montreal with an impressive business development, finance and retail know-how and an appetite for new challenges, he partnered up with his childhood friend, Paul Soucie, as co-owner of restaurant Misto in 2011. It only took a few months for the pair to pool their resources and bring a new restaurant project to life: Le Richmond in Griffintown. Luc took on the entire design aspect of the venture in a masterful fashion. His creative talent helped transform this 1889 industrial space into an opulent and theatrical dining room. As the doors open, please, take place and enjoy Le Richmond experience.
