Michael Bastian scores with lacrosse-themed sportswear collection for Gant

For the debut Gant by Michael Bastian collection, aimed at what the designer envisions as the more casual “younger brother” of his existing customer, Bastian chose a lacrosse motif.

The collection is heavy on a retro-varsity color palette of faded orange, burgundy and green, the capsule collection includes tailored blazers with soft shoulders and squared-off elbow patches, oxford cloth, poplin and flannel button-front shirts, embroidered corduroys, destroyed denim and chinos. In addition to the aforementioned rugby shirts, the collection features casual pieces like pique polos, thermals and mesh athletic shorts. Outerwear offerings include puffer jackets and peacoats.

The inaugural Gant by Michael Bastian collection is slated to hit retail in August (with prices expected to hammock between Gant’s current wares and Bastian’s designer label), and the collaboration is expected to continue, with both parties already working on the spring/summer 2011 collection.
