As MB himself has alluded to recently, he is out to show that he can do more than just plain-vanilla, American prep. That is to say, the Michael Bastian vision is one of prep, but prep through the lens of one very talented individual. From F/W 2013’s darker venture to S/S 2014’s pineapple/leopard spot extravaganza, MB has indeed demonstrated something other than unfiltered, take-no-prisoners prep.
A sampling of MB’s strong S/S 2014 showing:
(MB also took the opportunity to show off some accessories from an upcoming collaboration with Massachusetts’ Frank Clegg Leatherworks. Incredible!)
