Patrik Ervell can be credited with two things: helping bring the club collar back into fashion, and injecting a bit of life into a lacklustre New York show season. His Spring/Summer 2012 collection was right on point. The reason for its success? They were garments that guys will actually want to wear. His suits were cut crisply with fuller lapels, his workwear pieces were attractively sturdy, and the more creative elements – colourful ink blotch shirts, floaty parkas and contrast sleeve jackets – never veered into ridiculous territories. In a season filled with over-styled, out of touch menswear collections, Ervell’s was a breath of fresh air.
