Against a backdrop of banging early 90s techno, Patrik Ervel conjured the most well-dressed rave in history. Silver scaffolding from a fictional construction site served as a centerpiece, and models marched around it to the syncopated beat in this sleek collection - lambskin vests, aviator jackets, cut-to-a-t blazers and other Ervel staples abounded, plus the runway review of his women's designs. What truly stood out were the hand-painted, color-saturated pieces. No one has ever made a rainbow shirt and jacket look so tough and effortless. Coupled with his hit Winter collection, Ervel delivered a one-two knockout punch.
