Inspired by Bel-Air and old Hollywood, the Michael Bastian Spring/Summer 2016 collection featured uptown preppy wears in a range of pastels, denim, campy prints and patterns, and suiting separates in blues, blacks and stripes. The casuals included cashmere cardigans, cream shorts, flannel shirts, polo shirts and among the accessories, a fabulous banana leaf camouflage print tote and cheeky slippers by Stubbs and Wootton. The NYFWMs show also marked Bastian’s entry into the women’s wear market.

June seems to be going by so fast, as Father’s Day is already this weekend. To add to your summer wardrobe, or in case you haven’t had time to pick up a gift yet for your dad, partner or any other men in your life with kids, a polo is a timeless summer style.
As a summer essential, the polo can be dressed up or down and is offered in the collections of several men’s fashion brands each summer season. See my picks below:

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).
