Patrik Ervell SS09
For a lot of people clothes are just shirts and pants, hats and coats, so on and so on… little more than a way not to be naked. Most go so far as to try matching colors I presume, but that’s about it. Dressing is an art form – one you expect clothing designers in particular to appreciate. With Patrik Ervell that is surely the case.
The different pieces of his spring – summer 09 collection play off one another creating harmonious ensembles and beautiful outfits. Known largely for hi minimalistic, utilitarian designs this latest collection comes with a large and perhaps unexpected dose of personality provided by fanciful detailing (there’s a polo decked out in mother of pearl buttons) and playful patterns (stripes lots of stripes). Mr.Ervell’s latest is as sublime as it is surprising.
