Michael Bastian: One of BMW’s Six Pioneers

As explained by GQ and BMW:

American menswear designer Michael Bastian’s vision of the future is a delicate balance of classicism and innovation: forward-thinking design coupled with irreplaceable staples of yesteryear. His approach is an introspective one: He mines memories of past experiences, artists who influenced him, even elaborate inside jokes. The result is a line that never wears its influences too clearly on its sleeve, weaving just a touch of subtle and addictive nostalgia into its fabric to entrance viewers while introducing them to new ideas.
