Pushing the boundaries of sartorial tailoring, the SIMON SPURR Autumn/Winter 2012 collection continues to elaborate on the theme of British modernism. Inspired by the men in Robert Frank’s photographs of London, the collection is rooted in the dignified and elegant style of the early 20th century.
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.
