^ Thanks for the pics, this is PITA work right there (I should know... ). I can put that in the first post if you want.

You know, I would've said the same thing after SS 11 but after thinking about it for a while there's always a visual identity in Ervell shows (something that labels like Rag&Bone don't have imo) and a part of that would indeniably be lost by not puttting a runway. Ervell can be minimalist or boring or repetitive or plain or whatever but it always remains a visual experience first and foremost, something a showroom is lacking in.
I know it's probably a losing proposition to put out a bunch of latex capes or jumpsuits - especially for a smaller designer like Ervell - but part of me really wishes that menswear would get a little bit weirder (for lack of a better term). Everyone should be forced to put out something at least at the strangeness level of a jumpsuit.
