Simon Spurr Named as Creative Director of Kent & Curwen

Mar 18, 2014


British heritage brand Kent & Curwen exists in a rare and distinguished tier. Not too many brands, if any, can claim to have been worn by the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Edinburgh as well as timeless style icons like Fred Astaire, Cary Grant and Sean Connery. In 1930, they introduced the iconic V-neck cricket sweater which remains a prepster staple to this day, and they have been a supplier of the rowing strip for the prestigious Oxford University Boat Club crew. Continuing with their rich tradition of quality and innovation, respected menswear designer Simon Spurr (Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren Purple & Black Label, Tommy Hilfiger) has just been appointed as their new Creative Director and Senior Vice President. The brand is presently making a big push into the US market, and Spurr's proven ability for modernizing menswear classics should strike a pitch-perfect tone in their upcoming collections.

Below is a selection of items from Kent & Curwen's Fall/Winter 2013 collection.
