For the Jack Spade Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Design Director Todd Magill took a more modern approach than in previous years and found inspiration in men in big cities and that moment of transition when they're running from the office to the gym or out to meet friends. "These are the clothes the guy in an urban environment needs," Magill explained. "I've been calling it 'urban utility.'" To complement the collection, Magill and stylist Deborah Watson worked with R+Co's Thom Priano to craft a look that was modern and groomed but still classic and relaxed.
