“It’s fake, but in fact it’s made from an animal fiber, so it’s a really luxurious material. I guess it’s my take on a fur coat,” said designer Patrick Ervell backstage at Milk Studios, after premiering his Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, “Titan” on Monday evening. Pieced together from the basics of formal suiting and Wall Street workwear the collection, in true Ervell form, utilizes unconventional fabrics—in this case a woven wool, “teddy bear fur”—as it’s center piece.” As he concluded, “fur is a bit of a challenge in menswear, but in this very Patagonia way, it’s very current.” Go further backstage with our exclusive photos below:
