Michael Bastian is known for his now iconic take on menswear: preppy, luxurious, chic, and sexy, yet easy and modern, rugged, and very fun. His collection presentations, styled with care and precision, read as a high-gloss Slim Aarons photo come to life. And you might extrapolate upon the famous Aarons quote and conclude that Mr. Bastian produces attractive clothes for attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.
If you are like me and closely follow the collections presented during fashion week season after season, year after year, then there is likely a designer or two whom you just can't wait to see send their first look down the catwalk. And like me, as you anxiously wait for the collection to be presented, you hope, wish, and pray that the designer doesn't stray too far from what it is that do so well and that you adore so much.
