Spotlight on SPURR

Simon Spurr

Back in 2008 Style Seen Daily founders Crystal Fambrini and Erica Cornwall sat down with Simon Spurr to discuss his two year old menswear collection SPURR which included three styles of American made mens denim and  and his plans to launch SIMON SPURR in 2009. At the time, he had just a few employees and was really known for his previous work in house with Hedi Slimane, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, since he has proven his talent with his creation of menswear affording timeless elegance to all. Check out our exclusive with Simon here:

As if his clean and strong design was not enough for us to become fans, his warm charming personality and British mannerisms did us in.

Not only have we watched Simon show his incredible talent by design, we have fallen for who he actually is as a person which made us that much happier when he has been honored many times in the fashion industry including in 2007, DNR awarded SPURR with the ‘Editor’s Choice Award for Best New Label.’ In 08′, GQ, in conjunction with the CFDA, named Simon ‘Best New Menswear Designers in America.’ Then in 09 he received the prestigious nomination for the CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund Award, then again the following year he was one of the final nominees for the CFDA’s Swarovski Award for Menswear, 2010.

Tommy Fazio Joins Simon Spurr

In 2009, another dynamic lovable addition came on board, Tommy Fazio, who was Men’s Fashion Director at Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus, resigned to become president of SPURR.  Tommy is the type of guy who will literally give you the scarf off his neck, ( we happen to be so lucky).  Together they continued to expand the brand which is firmly built upon a framework that emphasizes color, proportion and deliberate subtly, while remaining sophisticated with precision in tailoring that finds its roots in the heart of Savile Row.  All of the brands pieces are individually designed and manufactured in Italy, France and the US using the finest fabrics in the world.  Simon’s designs have won the hearts of men across the globe, including celebrities like Justin Timberlake and Bradley Cooper, his jackets, suits and bags have become a mainstay in men’s wardrobes year round.

Simon Spurr Runway

With Tommy on board, they debuted SPURR and SIMON SPURR’s first runway show during New York Fall ’10 Fashion Week.  Highlights of the show are all over the internet and in the pages of magazines gloabally including Details, GQ, WWD and Vogue. Both brands are sold worldwide including Bergdorf Goodman, Jeffrey New York, Saks Fifth Avenue, Luisa Via Roma, The Webster, Confederacy, Harrods, Bloomingdales, Scoop and Nordstrom.
