Pleasures x Patrick Nagel: Who The Heck Is Nagel?

Pleasures x Patrick Nagel: Who The Heck Is Nagel?

PLEASURES has worked with the estate of the artist Patrick Nagel to create an exclusive, limited edition capsule collection to showcase his iconic style and work. 

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.
