MICHAEL BASTIAN FOR GANT SS11






MICHAEL BASTIAN LAUNCHES
HIS FIRST-EVER WOMEN’S
COLLECTION UNDER THE “GANT
BY MICHAEL BASTIAN” LABEL

The GANT guy has found his girl as Michael Bastian
launches his first collection for women during the spring 2011
season at New York Fashion Week.
The spring 2011 season, featuring both men’s and women’s sportswear and accessories, is inspired by the unlikely combination of the sports nerd and the bombshell finding each other and falling in love. The curious pair embarks on a yesteryear affair, further inspired by the honeymoon destination of mid-century Niagara Falls.
Michael Bastian explained; “We all know the GANT guy – pretty straightforward, athletic, and healthy. I feel the GANT by Michael Bastian girl has more of a fashion edge. She’s a bit of a bombshell, the girl you would do anything for.”
The men’s collection is clean and refined, with colorful classics and easy warm-weather, washed-out signature pieces including lightweight patchwork button downs, shorts and trousers, featherweight corduroy suit separates and the perfect swimsuit. The women’s collection, full of casual sensuality and a touch of sex appeal, encompasses everything from tailored cotton blazers and the perfect seersucker dress with lace trim to soft layering knits and retro swimwear.
Michael Bastian continues, “For a while now I’ve been thinking about expanding into women’s design, and I’m really happy and grateful that GANT is giving me this opportunity.”
The collection is available at premier shopping destinations including Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus in the US, Harry Rosen in Canada, Selfridges in the UK, and Colette in Paris. In addition, the line is available at GANT flagship stores and key company-owned establishments worldwide.
