Simon Spurr Menswear Runway Report, Oh and A Chuck Bass Sighting

My first time at Milk Made Studios this season was for the Simon Spurr show, which I was really excited about seeing because there's nothing better than seeing a man in a sophisticatedly tailored. Before the show I was sitting in the American Express VIP Lounge and in walks none other than Ed Westwick.  Yes, Gossip Girl's own, Chuck Bass.  We were just sitting there alone for a little until his escort for the show (a gorgeous tall brunette with a sequin jacket and mini skirt who worked at MADE) joined him.  He sat front row at the show looking quite dapper appropriately dressed in a Simon Spurr suit, but I was completely thrown off by his two pinky rings.  Yes, two.  One on each pinky and they were huge!

Well tailored three piece suits, pin stripes, quilted leather jackets and well groomed male models graced the runway.  After the show I got to speak with the designer for a quick second.  He explained the collection was an extension of fall, reinforcing that the brand is known for sharp, precise tailoring, but also taking a modern slant on country dressing.
