SAVILE ROW SCI-FI
New York: British-born Simon Spurr’s influence is rarely far away from the sartorial splendor of Savile Row. For F/W 11, he pushed past his comfort zone for a collection rich in tailoring tradition but with an added contemporary edge. A brown sharkskin suit was underpinned with a leather shirt – an example of how to move the classics forward; glazed tees, wide-striped suiting and non-traditional colors used in a Prince of Wales plaid also felt new. Quickly becoming one of New York’s most consistent collections, Spurr never takes his man to a place where statement style is at the expense of wearability or taste.
