Look 24 NYFW Review & Photos: Simon Spurr Autumn/Winter 2012

Sartorial tailoring, British modernism, distinguished gentleman are all great words to describe Simon Spurr Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection however, I would like to use just one..BRILLIANT! As I watched the Simon Spurr A/W 2012 collection I immediately felt as if I were transported to London. The cut of the suits, the colors and the use of umbrellas as accessories all shouted out London gentleman. This reins true as the collection was inspired by the men in Robert Frank’s photographs of London. Historic and military influences serve as undertones in the new collection.

Simultaneously, the collection brings forth the controversial re-definition of the traditional suit set forth by Tommy Nutter in the 1960′s. Enlarged hounds tooth patterns are printed or bonded to suiting, outerwear and sweaters. Shadow plaids and shadow tweeds are contrasted by graphic geometric prints and jacquard sweaters.

The rich color palette of burgundy, brown, pilot blue, grey, and black give the collection a vivid yet grounded quality; a quality which aptly refers back to a time of personal revelation, social rebellion and aesthetic innovation in the historic 1960′s. Simon Spurr’s design aesthetic is clearly informed by both his English upbringing as well as by his years spent working with Hedi Slimane, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. His approach to design is firmly built upon frameworks that emphasize color, proportion and deliberate subtlety

Some of the noted attendees of the show were: Joe Jonas, Musician – Kellan Lutz, Actor (Twilight saga) – Brad Goreski, Celebrity Stylist & Reality Star – Andy Cohen, Talk Show Host & Bravo Exec – Gabe Saporta, Musician of Cobra Starship – Norman Reedus, Actor (AMC’s The Walking Dead) – Matthew Rhys, Actor (ABC’s Brothers & Sisters) – Robert Verdi, Celebrity Stylist & TV Personality – Erin Fetherston, Fashion Designer – Derek Blasberg, 24 Hour Catwalk judge & Fashion Editor *Joe, Kellan, Brad, Andy, Gabe, Norman are all wearing SIMON SPURR

Final Note: You need at least one Simon Spurr piece in your wardrobe in Autumn/Winter 2012.
