Michael Bastian, get to know him!!!
The light bulb just went off in my head…these designer x “insert asseccible brand here” is whats really going to elevate American stand of design/fashion/style to European or Asian level. Michael Bastian to me is the next Ralph or something. The former mens fashion director turned designer is on his way to becoming a household name. Those are the designers I like to watch, the ones that don’t go to school for it, but have the knack for it. A fresh perspective he actually gave me. Super nice dude amazingly talented, fresh outlook on real American fashion. His last Fall collection says it all, traditional silhouettes with a modern Pop thing going on. He’s relaunching Bill Blass and still has time to knock out some amazing shirts for the Gap. Check them out. Its rare I’d get this excited over a dress shirt but I think thats my taste changing. Modern-western shirts…I am all in.
