Last week Patta revealed their first artist and his designs for our special sweater project "3 the Hard Way, Triple Threat, Patta Reworked". Today they reveal Eric elms as their next artist in this series.
I’m personally a huge fan of Eric’s and I think both these designs for Patta, the "Patta Gang" and the "Line Stack", are great. Remember there’s more from Patta daily at their Slam X Hype Blog.
Eric Elms is a New York based artist and designer. He started working as head designer at Supreme when he was 21 and has gone on to work for companies such as Nike, Panasonic, Wieden+Kennedy, HUGE Magazine, Stussy, OBEY, Ssur, aNYthing, among others. As an artist he has had solo exhibitions and has contributed to shows in NYC, Japan, Australia and all across Europe. He currently runs a studio in Brooklyn, NY where he hopes to continue to produce work that makes people smile and think.
The Patta x Eric Elms sweaters all feature heavy duty fleece, thermal linings, underarm ventilation eyelets, side slit pockets and will be available in-store only at Patta on Saturday December 1st and Alife Rivington Club (New York) (date TBA). Be on the lookout for the final artist to be announced next week!
