Vintage parachutes and gold foil are just two of the unconventional materials NYC-based designer Patrik Ervell uses in designing his chic, utilitarian collections of men’s and women’s clothing. His love for classic shapes and uniforms of all kinds is evident in his reinterpretations of police sweaters, classic bomber and varsity jackets, field coats, standard button-down shirts, suiting, and back-to-basic trousers. Concealed button plackets, single needle tailored construction, button-less collars and oxidized iron and copper fabrics give Ervell’s work an austere, industrial elegance. Since launching his label in 2005 from Open Ceremony’s NYC store, Ervell has won the Ecco Domani Award for Menswear and become a perennial nominee for the CFDA’s Menswear award.
A typical Patrik Ervell collection starts with classic American styles (think varsity jackets and club-collar dress shirts) and tweaks them in a way that manages to be both interesting and—no small feat—wearable. There's no better example than the pieces featured in our selection, from a cleverly updated light blue button-down to a shawl collar jacket in sueded lambskin with a subtle engineer stripe.
The temperature may be rising a bit, but it’s not summer yet. And you still need something to stave off the chill in the spring air. We’ve got you covered with this massive collection of outerwear—from casual windbreakers, to trim leathers, to classic trenches. Whatever your style, grab that perfect transitional jacket here and wear it clear through the season.
