Man with a mean stripe: Patrik Ervell

Patrik_Ervell.jpgPatrik Ervell‘s SS09 collection is looking very right now. The Swedish-born, NYC-based designer has a way with stripes. This summer I’m still planning to wear the super-slim, tailored shorts in a vintage, broad striped fabric I bought in New York last year. Though pricey, Mr Ervell’s pieces definitely feel like an investment.

My attention now is on the anorak/Harrington jacket styles for spring, combining quality fabrics (linen/suiting) with interesting shapes and of course: STRIPES!

As ever, Valet puts its finger on the pulse, listing Ervell as one of several designers tracing a path from minimalist, stripe-loving artist Frank Stella.

Patrick Ervell is available in the UK from Dover Street Market and OiPolloi or from BBlessing in New York.
