I love this appointment, and personally think this is a big boost for the Hilfiger brand and will add sophistication to the men's brand (clearly i am a Spurr fan....). Simon Spurr has successful track record with design posts at Yves Saint Laurent under Hedi Slimane, and especially with the Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren brands which are great background for this job.
Lots to look for next season...Good Luck!
