NYFW: Michael Bastian’s Japan-inspired Collection For F/W 2014


Another New York Fashion Week season is among us, and it’s off to a fantastic start with Michael Bastian’s fall/winter 2014 presentation on Tuesday at the Rubin Museum of Art. Inspired by trips to Japan, Bastian’s collection ranged from casual to formal evening wear with different pieces and accessories made with kimono fabric (used in scarves, windbreakers and a kimono itself), or with ethnic and artful embroidery—such as a ‘Samurai armor’ fair isle turtleneck sweater, a track jacket with Mt Fuji on the back and a Godzilla cashmere sweater (which everyone will need right away).


Collaborations were in full force: bags by Frank Clegg, hats by Mr. Kim, jewelry with George Frost, shoes by Stubbs & Wootton, socks by Soxiety, and hand-knits by Josh Bennet. Luxury Swiss timepieces by Audemars Piguet. Outdoor and athletic brands North Face and Puma also were incorporated in a couple of the heavy layered sportswear looks.
