At Simon Spurr A/W 2011...

Simon Spurr's most recent presentation was a scene, to be sure; thankfully, the designer did not disappoint. He exhibited a collection rooted in classic English tailoring, one of his specialties. By using a palette of black, grey, and white, and by pairing the suits with oversized hooded cashmere knits and black leather driving gloves, Mr. Spurr crafted a slightly more sinister aesthetic. Edgier pieces like the washed-leather cavalry jacket and leather lancer trench added to the look. While much of the suiting can safely be called timeless, one might be mindful of the character wearing it...at least on this day.
