|GANT by Michael Bastian fall 2012 presentation at NYFW|
The GANT by Michael Bastian fall 2012 presentation took place Wednesday, February 15 at Exit Art in Manhattan during New York Fashion Week.
For Fall 2012, Michael Bastian journeyed back to his own college days in Boston for the GANT by Michael Bastian collection. The characters he had in mind when creating the collection are three friends, one of them none other than the designer himself as a young, preppy student back in the ’80s. Together with his two pals – a cool mod girl and her rough boxer boyfriend – he went to school during the days and hung out in mod clubs on weekends. Emphasis of the collection is as always on updated American Sportswear, but this time with elements of Michael’s notion of a Boston frozen in the ’80s added to the mix: the mod era revival, a touch of boxing and a little Irish Luck.
