Playing off “the traditional idea of forests as anti-city,” Patrik Ervell delivered a clean, sophisticated and strong collection. Choosing not to show a women’s lineup this season came as a surprise to some, but it allowed for a more concise men’s wear effort.

The youth-obsessed designer is starting to show signs of growing up, but the tension was still evident — obvious in a cropped navy tuxedo blazer worn with cinched nylon athletic pants, and an indigo wool jacquard robe-coat with fitted flannel pants. The woodsy prints, used on everything from bomber jackets and hooded parkas to shirts and skinny pants, felt very of-the-moment, showing that bold patterns can still flourish in Ervell’s sharp, minimalistic world.
