IT TAKES A REBEL TO KNOW A REBEL

When it comes to visionaries and rule-breakers, it takes one to know one. That’s why we selected a panel of creative class leaders, all of whom are experts in their field, to judge this year’s REBELS entries – deciding first on the shortlist, before whittling down the winners in each of the six categories. With well over 200 entries to comb through, this was no easy feat; plus, to add to the pressure even more, we got them to do it live on the show floor on the second day of LE 2017…

Led by Beyond Luxury Media Founder and CEO, Serge Dive, the judges – including The Outnet.com and NET-A-PORTER’S Andres Sosa and Luceny Fofana from adidas – combed through and deliberated over the entries for over three hours, before finally coming to a decision on the shortlist. Check out who made the cut below, and keep an eye on the LE site and social channels, where the winners will be announced on Wednesday live from THE REBELS and Closing Party in front of the entire LE collective.
