Simon Spurr, the British-born co-Founder and Creative Director of SPURR and SIMON SPURR, was inducted to the CFDA in 2009. Launched in the Fall of 2006 with three styles of denim jeans, SPURR has evolved into a complete menswear line featuring a full range of denim, sportswear, suits and accessories including bags and ties. Simon’s unique design aesthetic is reflected in both of his line’s offerings, which are instantly recognizable for their detailed, clean and modern looks.
2009 was an important year for Simon Spurr. In addition to being admitted to the CFDA in June, Simon was selected as a finalist for the CFDA/VOGUE Fashion Fund. In October, Tommy Fazio, former Men’s Fashion Director for Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, joined SPURR as President.
This month, Simon will debut his new collection, SIMON SPURR, during Milan’s Fashion Week. On February 14, he will present both SIMON SPURR and SPURR together on the runway during New York Fashion Week. The new SIMON SPURR line will be a complete menswear collection with a higher level of make, including hand-finished leather, shirting and sweaters. The collection will impress the existing SPURR customer and will remain consistent with the timeless, sophisticated and elegant image that the brand has developed over the past four years.
Simon Spurr graduated from Middlesex University in London in 1996 with a B.A. (with honors) in Men’s Fashion Design.
