Gant by Michael Bastian

Together with the likes of Thom Brown, Michael Bastian is currently one of the most talked-about new New York designers in the fashion world. Gant has entered into a design collaboration with Michael Bastian that differs from most on one pivotal point – both their hearts and roots lie firmly embedded in the classic style known as American Sportswear (both Michael Bastian’s father and paternal grandfather wore Gant). Inspiration for the campaign is drawn from lacrosse (an ancient American team sport that is played using a rubber ball and a long-handled racket strung with loose netting)and from style sketches retrieved from Gant’s 60-year old archives.

We would like to congratulate

Michael Bastian has been nominated for the prestigious CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year Award for the third time. This time around his competitors include Tom Ford. The winner will be announced on June 7 in New York.
