We love a good designer and brand collaboration here at MFL for Him, and we especially love it when a truly great designer gets together with a top brand to create a collection that really works. The latest of said collaborations that we’re looking forward to is that of twice nominated CDFA Menswear Designer of the Year, Michael Bastian and Gant – the brand that delivers American style clothing with European flair.
The collection, which is set to launch at the end of August, fuses the rich heritage of Gant with the modern and luxurious American classics that Michael Bastian is known for, and promises to mix sporty pieces with tailored elements to create a truly wearable collection.
Inspired by the fastest sport on two feet, Lacrosse, the collection features sporty separates in classic colours, where maroon sweaters edged with contrast orange stripes are mixed with check shirts and chunky knits for a grown-up preppy look.
We love this green knit sweater with the quirky Lacrosse pattern across the chest – it looks great worn with simple chinos and a relaxed shirt underneath for a sports-chic look.
Worn with a check flannel shirt this classic down bomber jacket does that American sportswear look perfectly, as well as making for a great piece of outerwear for Autumn Winter. Other stand-out pieces in the collection that are worth checking out include tailored blazers with elbow patches and a truly must-have washed moleskin military pea coat.
