"Sunday Runway - Michael Bastian, Fall 2014 . . . "

Michael Bastian, Fall 2014


Let's take a quick moment on our Sunday together and have a look at one of my favourite men's runways shows from Fashion Week.  Regular readers will know of my admiration for Michael Bastian - and his amazing men's collections.  And I'm particularly delighted by the show from earlier this week in New York.

Have a look at a few of my favourites . . .

"Michael spent a lot of time in Tokyo last year. 'I've been thinking about 
Japan for a while,' the designer said in his West Side Highway studio a day 
before taking to the runway. More specifically, he'd been thinking about 
how Japanese men—in particular, the editors and buyers who travel to 
Florence's famous Pitti Uomo tradeshow—take Italian, English, 
and American design references to another level. 'They draw from
the best of each culture and make it look even better,' he said. 
'Team Japan is nailing it.'"

Classic.  American. 

An amazing hybrid of classic American yoke-necked sweater -
with the perfect balance of classic samurai-inspired embellishments. 

Ok, seriously.  The "Godzilla Sweater" is EVERYTHING! 

Michael Bastian, at the conclusion of his show! 
What were your favourites?

I like the Classic American, but the white socks gotta go, don't you think? They look too awkward with the narrow cut of the bottom of the trousers. Just my thoughts!

Carol -

I'm actually a BIG white crew sock fan - so we're going to just have to disagree on this one . . . lol. In this particular look - one of the things that I liked was the repeated motif of the white collar, white wrist detail, and white ankles.

But - thanks (as always!) for taking part in the conversation!

cheers, Scot
