Simon Spurr has exploded—as evidenced by the almost-avenue long line of fashion folk waiting in Sunday's cold for entrance to the designer's packed Fall/Winter '11 show. We squeaked in at 12:40pm—the show was meant to start at noon—and barely got to our seat before the lights went down. We're not sure if the throng in line behind us even made it inside.

And the hullabaloo seems warranted—the collection was stripped, if slightly, of detail: Less print, less color, hidden-placket shirts, scarves camouflaged by the sweaters and jackets they accessorized by matching so perfectly. It was streamlined and trim, with lots of leather and denim—and as per the law of Spurr, gorgeously tailored. Enjoy the gallery of highlights.
