Patrik Ervell looked to the past as well as the future for his fall collection. “It is the sweet spot between futurism and nostalgia,” he said backstage at his show.
A drop-shoulder jacket in gray ballistic wool-nylon channeled an Eighties aesthetic, while a voluminous dark gray polyester pant worn with chunky shoes showed a strong Nineties raver influence. But the designer kept things modern by infusing his outerwear staples with a minimalistic flair and some sci-fi uniform references that he also used last season. A good example was a deep purple flight jacket in shiny nylon over a wool crepe navy suit and a tonal turtleneck in a technical knit. Ervell might feel nostalgic for the club kid era, but his lineup is strongly rooted in the present.
