English Rooting–Looking for the foundation of his fall/winter 2012 collection, Simon Spurr turned to images of London by Robert Frank. Taking into account early twentieth century style and heading down a modern course, references that include Tommy Nutter’s reinterpreted suit of the 1960’s come into play as Spurr dissects suiting for a relevant edge. Bringing together rich burgundy, brown, navy and other solid colors for a collection dressed in plaids and tweeds, subtle updates were introduced. From leather trousers and a magnified hounds tooth print to a signature penchant for fabric insets, Simon Spurr’s latest efforts resulted in a sound showing, highlighting a sartorial flair juxtaposed with modern sentiments.
