Designer Simon Spurr learned the craft of menswear under Hedi Slimane during his initial stint at Yves Saint Laurent (pre-name change controversy), from there, he went on to work for Calvin Klein, then Ralph Lauren in 2003, where he was the Design Director for uber-luxe menswear labels Ralph Lauren Black Label and Ralph Lauren Purple Label. Three years later, he launched his namesake line, first consisting of hard-wearing, well-made selvedge denim, before debuting a full-fledged menswear collection in 2007. Spurr's designs have always been characterized by luxurious fabrics, precise silhouettes, and daring patterns. Those are trademarks he brought to his consulting gig for Tommy Hilfiger's menswear collection. Even though he left his namesake label last year, rumors that he hopes to relaunch are enough to whet our appetite for more Spurr.
