7 For All Mankind, a division of Delta Galil Industries, Ltd. has named British fashion designer Simon James Spurr as its global creative director, effective immediately. Spurr is a highly accomplished designer who brings critical acclaim from his namesake brand Simon Spurr, along with more than 20 years of expertise from leading fashion brands.

His first collection for 7 For All Mankind will launch in Spring 2020 as the brand celebrates its 20th anniversary. In his new role, Spurr will lead the global teams with a new vision for product that bridges 7 For All Mankind’s heritage as a premium denim brand with a new, modern approach across classifications. He will be located in Los Angeles where his team of direct reports has been strategically assembled with design talent that reflects the brand’s new product strategy. Reporting directly to Spurr will be 7 For All Mankind women’s design director, Larissa Noble and men’s design director, Wes Austin. Margaret Maldonado, a co-founder of L’Agence, has joined the company as senior design director of women’s ready-to-wear reporting to Noble.

"We are very excited to welcome such a strong and proven creative talent as Spurr. He brings the perfect balance of relevant experience, entrepreneurial spirit, and fashion vision to lead 7 For All Mankind into its third decade," said Tim Baxter, Delta Galil Premium Brands chief executive officer. “Importantly, Spurr also has a strong, directional perspective on how we can modernise the brand and position it for accelerated growth while sustaining our legacy as a premium denim brand.”

Spurr joins 7 For All Mankind from EIDOS, where he served as creative director. Over the last two decades, he has built a career in the designer and contemporary markets and has acquired a 360-degree perspective of the design process, from initial concept, to the design and production of full lifestyle collections. Spurr has been recognised by the industry as an FGI Rising Star Award Winner, and was a multiple CFDA Menswear Award Nominee, a CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund Nominee and a GQ Best Menswear Award Nominee, among others.

"I have long-admired 7 For All Mankind as a leader in the premium denim category and iconic brand that is beloved by consumers across generation. I am excited to join the company and lead an incredible team of exceptional designers, as we look to expand the brand with new opportunities," Spurr concluded. (RR)
