Patrick Li, Packaging Your Sartorial Experience

Patrick Li, Packaging Your Sartorial Experience

Known for: Integrating the inscrutable design aesthetic of your favorite amazian fashion designers (from Alexander Wang to Philip Lim to Jason Wu) into the strangely-important little pieces–like label tags and gift boxes.

The NYTimes did a fascinating profile of Li over the weekend, in which he is depicted as both a design and communication genius. In the article, Rodarte co-designer Kate Mulleavy explains Li’s gift: “I would describe Patrick’s work as like distilling something to the purest form”–likely why the boldest and most complex of the fashion world flock to him when trying to determine their season’s essence.

We fancy ourselves a bit complex… now, all we have to do is see if he’ll redesign the DISGRASIAN logo in exchange for both of our first-born. And maybe a nice bottle of scotch.

BABEWATCH: Hidetoshi Nakata

Name: Hidetoshi Nakata

Hails from: Japan

Occupation: Footballer-turned-Fashionisto

Why He’s a Babe: For one thing, you know dude’s smoking hawt when it literally takes HOURS to settle on what photo to use of him. “Hide” as greased-up Gay Icon (he is allegedly straight, but who knows)? Sartorialist? Soccer star? Playa? It’s not even clear to us what or who the 31 year-old retired athlete does these days–other than showing up at fashion shows looking really dope–and, frankly, with that body, we don’t give a shit.
