The Sunday following the GANT by Michael Bastian presentation was the runway show of Michael’s own label. The venue was Exit Art in New York City and the set and music were both fantastic.
Overall, the collection felt edgier than seasons past but quality was still uncompromising. There was both a lot of smart suiting and stylish casual wear, fabulously topped off with Michael’s signature whimsy. The clothes were masculine, American, and demonstrated outstanding vision on Michael’s part. To top it all off, the sunglasses Michael used on his models were gorgeous.
Here are some of my favorite looks from what I feel is Michael’s best collection to date:
