Born to Swedish immigrants, Patrik Ervell studied Art History, Economics, and Political Sciences at the University of California at Berkeley before becoming a menswear designer. Originally, Ervell had planned to go into politics, travelling the world as a diplomat before starting his own T-shirt line which would ultimately evolve into the Patrik Ervell brand. Ervell’s design philosophy is best understood as not hoping to reinvent menswear silhouettes, but rather to refine them. Ervell is noted for his eclectic fabric choices including gold foil, vintage parachutes, oxidized metals, or horsehair. His designs are characterized as utilitarian, minimal and elegant.
