Drawing inspiration from classic American sportswear, Michael Bastian delivers a dashing, glamorous and modern collection for FW12. Masculine confidence, good taste and a dose of rakish charm distinguish the line from other American designers, who continue to make “preppy” into something costume-y and precious. Bastian’s collection balances manly appeal, playful color and luxe comfort with maturity and wearability.
