This is old news, but the folks at Opening Ceremony are blogging. In the most recent entry, shop co-owner Humberto Leon interviews his friend, designer Patrik Ervell. Leon: 'Do you remember the first time we met?' Patrik: 'I'm not sure if I can pinpoint it exactly. It was in San Francisco. I was maybe 18 or 19. Maybe at someone's party at Berkeley or something. I remember you were dressed like a crazy person and that seemed exciting.' [Opening Ceremony New News]
