Before his passing, Nagel stood at the forefront of illustration in the late ’70s and early ’80s in his re-imagination of the graphic arts and cementing of Los Angeles as a key player in the visual arts. Known for his minimalist risqué prints that served as a portrayal of the contemporary woman, Nagel left indelible marks with his work and influence in the fashion, photography and music realms. Gravitating towards four prints, the special range of long- and short-sleeved T-shirts, crewnecks and hoodies undeniably expresses the late artist’s sensibility and style. PLEASURES also injected some of its own design leanings adding choice references to salons and an ode to Patrick Nagel.
