PATRIK ERVELL S/S 2015
High tech 80’s interiors was the inspiration for Patrik Ervell’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection shown at New York City’s Milk Studios. Ervell’s models walked the runway and then posed in front of a moody back lit set with venetian blinds. The designer stated he watched a lot of 80’s Michael Mann films and the hi-tech interiors caught his eye. So, this season he used sturdy textiles that are usually meant for commercial interior design. We favored the macintosh trenches he created in bright red and blue with very exaggerated venting and pockets. The transparent rubber pieces are very futuristic and prove a bold statement on any modern man. Metallic track pants and shorts added a pop of color in polyurethane fabric. And, vibrant watercolor print silk pieces lent a great Spring touch to a very industrial collection. We were crazy for the big teased Ian McCulloch/Echo and The Bunnymen hair designed by the talented Holli Smith. Photography Alexander Thompson.
