What do they have in common?Mickey Rourke wearing Nigel Curtiss in The Independent MagazineThey all wore clothing designed by Nigel CurtissNigel began his career as a textile designer and model in London. His talent inspired one of his main clients, Rei Kawakubo founder of Comme des Garcons to hire him. He moved to Tokyo where he further refined his unique talent for combining the quality and craftsmanship of Savile Row tailoring with the refined, edgy aesthetic of Japanese design. Nigel saw a great opportunity for Rei in menswear. Rei saw a great oppor-tunity in Nigel. She responded to his concept for a men’s clothing line by telling him to “do it”. That began an explosive career in design at Comme des Garcons for 10 years, culminating in Nigel’s own label with major shows in Paris, Milan and New York. Nigel Curtiss quickly became known as a prestigious, luxury, high fashion brand. His collections were sold in the most exclusive retailers around the world including Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Maxfield, Harvey Nichols, Collette and Neiman Marcus. Nigel’s unique perspective on design and knowledge of the business made him a highly sought after talent for companies such as Yves Saint Laurent Pour Homme, Kenzo, Ungaro, Arrow and Arcadia. At the urging of his many loyal clients, Curtiss is launching his brand as a unique custom design house, creating a complete line of luxury, men’s apparel. For the first time, Nigel’s talents will be available not only to his long-time clients, but to those who excel in the fields of business, enter-tainment and sports: men who know timeless style and want a unique look created with the highest quality fabrics and standards of craftsman-ship.
