Arrested Long Sleeve Tee in White (Patrick Nagel Collection) by Pleasures
American artist Patrick Nagel's minimalist style defined an era with cool,
seductive women that became the most iconic of any single generation. His
elegant graphic work and his portrayal of the contemporary woman made
figurative design before him look instantly old. Today his unique sensibility
and style continue to resonate with generations of young designers,
illustrators and artists who have found inspiration from his trend-setting style.
Nagel was in the forefront of a new wave of illustration in Los Angeles in the
late 1970’s and early 80’s, re-imagining the graphic arts and in the process
defining Los Angeles as the epicenter of award-winning visual arts. It was a
reciprocal relationship; Los Angeles influenced his evolving style and in return
he left his indelible mark on the city and far beyond. Through cultural
cross-pollination, his work absorbed the moment – from the fashion
photography of Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton to influencing the look of
music videos by David Bowie, Robert Palmer and George Michael, to creating
the album cover art of Duran Duran.
Los Angeles based Pleasures collaborates with Patrick Nagel's estate for a unique capsule of apparel highlighting the artists work.
