“Style is the aesthetic expression, through dressing, of broader aesthetic or cultural ideals.”
As quoted by Patrik Ervell. He is certainly one to listen out for as he has just been named alongside Robert Geller and Tim Hamilton for the prestigious Swarovski award.
Patrik gets special mention with us, here at Stylenerds, this year due to his European roots, against the other designers based in the US – although his life and fashion are very-much based in America at present.
Check out an interview with Patrik Ervell and see some of his Fall 08 line here:
In addition to the Swarovski award, Michael Bastian, Scott Sternberg for Band of Outsiders, and Italo Zucchelli for Calvin Klein have been nominated for the Menswear Designer of the Year Award.
The nominees for each award are chosen by fashion-retailers, the press and stylists across America before being given a final go-ahead by the board of directors at the Council of Fashion Designers.
