For Spring/Summer 2013, Patrik Ervell looked to blend “a California mindset” with downtown sophistication, ultimately bringing out a fresh take on Americana. Look for a range of solid sportswear like nylon bombers, parkas, and quilted outerwear with an emphasis on technical detailing and function. The designer still manages to keep a minimalistic approach with refined tailoring to boot. Look for Patrik Ervell’s S/S 2013 collection to be available through Ervell boutiques as well as Patrick Ervell online.

Opening Ceremony’s taken their first shipment of Patrik Ervell‘s Spring collection, and were kind enough to share the looks. The 2010 CFDA Swarovski Award for Menswear nominee delivers all the pieces the designer’s known for but with a fresh and much-welcomed twist. Fabrics have been treated through the lens of decay: cottons are stained with copper oxide and iron metal shavings that have been left to soak in a saline solution for a week to create the mystically speckled pattern as seen perfectly-executed on suits and peter-pan collar shirts.
Swedish-born designer Patrik Ervell’s use of a diverse arsenal of fabrics and stripes has led to a collection that has reached new heights. The combo harrington jacket is a classic wardrobe staple with a seersucker twist. This jacket is perfect to layer over your contrast collar buttondowns. It features two front pocket flaps, a hidden zipper and is available in ivory.
