Designer Oli Spencer founded his label Oliver Spencer in 2002. A self-taught tailor, the British designer marries traditional cuts with street wear while drawing inspiration from Americana, Japan’s cool kids, hunting and military clothes, and the costumes of Sandy Powell, who did the Martin Scorsese films Gangs of New York and The Aviator. Spencer launched women’s wear in 2008, and has also added a shoe line. Think the perfect outfit for The Clash’s Mick Jones to wear on a dinner date with Anna Wintour at The Monkey Bar to discuss the Met’s “Chaos to Couture” punk exhibition. Fashion editors will preview the Fall/Winter Oliver Spencer 2013 collection at PR powerhouse LaForce + Stevens’s showroom. Oi!
