Boy Does Girl
Susanna Lau's view of New York S/S 2012


Patrik Ervell is joining a mini-wave of menswear designers (mostly our London lot) that are turning their hand to womenswear. Patrik Ervell's menswear is so well-articulated that I half expected the womenswear to fall short. It didn't. It embodied the same spirit as the mens but with a refinement that made Ervell's girls stalk about in leather t-shirts, ribbed knit jumpers and perfectly fitting suits. Girls who borrow from menswear will be enamoured with Ervell's womenswear debut.
