Welcome to Michael Bastian’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection. There were black birds on the walls (and a few made their way onto the clothes), a tune by Frank Ocean, some oversized fur mittens, a wolf knit cardigan, purple beanies, and my favorite — a wool sweater with a heart stitched in (hey, it’s almost Valentine’s Day). So, what was the designer feeling for his latest collection? While his past shows were a bit more sexualized, this time Bastian embraced a darker, cooler, and even grittier aesthetic. He showed what he’s good at too – plaids, tweeds, and one hell of a shearling motorcycle jacket that might be a bit too daring for this young lad. With layers upon layers mixed into the majority of the looks – Bastian, your dark and stormy side is spot on.
