Simon Spurr Headed Back to Simon Spurr?

+

We’ve been at a loss of sorts since our favorite Englishman-in-New York, Simon Spurr, left his eponymous label back in March—no one else cuts a suit quite like he does. So imagine the grin on our faces when we opened the New York Times this morning and read that he’s in talks to return to his six-year-old line. Heading into next week’s CFDA awards—Spurr is nominated for best menswear designer against Billy Reid and Patrik Ervell—Eric Wilson coaxed some promising tidbits out of the razor-sharp Brit. “I’m working together with my business partner and investor to find a resolution,” he said. “I have high hopes to come back to the company one day.” If Spurr can work out the conflicts over market positioning that reportedly led him to split from his co-founder Judd Nydes less than three months ago, he might be poised to reclaim the very throne he built.
