With more than a decade of experience in the men’s luxury fashion market, New York-based British luxury menswear designer Simon Spurr creates his luxurious Simon Spurr and SPURR collections with style and confidence. This young Brit started his career in fashion on a high working with leading names, including Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren Purple & Black Labels and Burberry Black, so a move to begin his own collection appropriately ensued. Since launching SPURR in fall 2006, Simon has sold his detailed, clean, modern looks to high-end boutiques in the United States and worldwide. His Simon Spurr and SPURR brands can be found at Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Scoop and many more. Simon’s unique design aesthetic spurred his nomination for the 2009 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award and secured his place as a 2010 CFDA Swarovski Menswear Award finalist.
