Patrik Ervell - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Patrik Ervell sent a sole female model down the runway in the middle of his show as a nod to his women clients. “It’s menwear, but girls buy it,” he said. The inspiration was awash with gender bending: Ervell said masculine women from the 70s and 80s inspired him. Standout pieces were the coats, like a double-breasted in white with a blue collar. However, the collection on a whole was not as revolutionary or intriguing as his previous efforts. Yet, it still managed to captivate a crowd of tastemakers including Terence Koh, Ryan McGinley, and Michael Stipe.
