At Jack Spade's first Fashion Week presentation last February, design director Todd Magill proved a point. The brand, already established for its bags and accessories, was ready to spread its wings and become a serious contender in the world of menswear. With the help of tailoring and luxe materials, Magill rendered basics like sweatpants in sleeker silhouettes cut from rich, buttery suede.
As one might imagine, overseeing the design for all the brand's categories requires plenty of late nights and early mornings, but Magill is cool with the commitment. In fact, he thinks about his customer all the time. "It's inspiring to have it on my mind," he says.
