Oliver Spencer is a man and a fashion brand. Oli, the man, is a designer, a self-taught tailor, a switched-on, hands-on creative. The brand is an expression of modern man; his tastes, his touch, his style.
So... welcome to the Oliver Spencer website. The whole collection is on show here, to view, enjoy and to buy. Plus, you can keep abreast of Oli's news, and meet some of his fans and friends.
Oli founded the label in 2002. He wanted a collection that mirrored his own wardrobe: a bridge between popular streetwear and traditional tailoring. Quality fabrics. Modern fits. Old-school construction. Characteristic details. Exquisite craftsmanship. The recipe abides.
The result is wearable, interesting, elegant clothes that are brilliantly put together. Oli's passion is there in every piece. It's his name above the door: he's striving for quality, out there sourcing the fabrics and the buttons and overseeing how it's all sewn. It's why even one Oliver Spencer garment can refresh a wardrobe, make you smile and set you apart.
Oli draws inspiration from hunting and the military. He adapts bits of Americana and ideas from Japan into his cool, English aesthetic. He admires Sandy Powell, costume designer for the Martin Scorsese movies Gangs of New York and The Aviator, as much as any fashion designer.
A modern British brand
Oliver Spencer has grown up in its ten years, adopted by the world's best shops. Oli took a standalone New York shop for Oliver Spencer in 2006, in partnership with top U.S. retailer Odin. In 2008, he opened the doors of a second shop, in London, and introduced his womenswear collection. In 2010 a third shop was opened in Toronto and the latest venture has been into shoes. Our shoe & womenswear shop was opened on Lambs Conduit Street in London in spring 2011 and our second menswear shop in Soho is now open on Berwick Street.
There is no escaping the fact that Oliver Spencer is a modern British brand. More than half the line is made in the UK. Oliver Spencer clothes are worn by music icons, from The Rolling Stones to Paul Weller and The Doves, and by movie stars from Toby Jones, Martin Freeman to Benicio Del Toro.
