|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.'"
|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!|
