NEW YORK — Designer Simon Spurr has exited as creative director at the label that bears his name. He left the company on Friday, he confirmed to WWD.

Spurr co-founded the brand in 2006 with partner Judd Nydes, who helped finance the company. E-mails to Nydes were not immediately returned.

The departure comes just as Spurr was nominated for the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year prize last week, along with Patrik Ervell and Billy Reid. In January, Spurr won the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award in men’s wear.
