Bastian of Chic

I don’t attend any men’s fashion shows but if there was one I did decide to attend, it would be Michael Bastian.  I love his modern take on preppy male clothing.  His chic style also extends to his West Village apartment.  You might remember it from the September 2008 issue of Domino magazine.  It still looks just as good more than two years later and he is often still photographed at home.  Most recently for Esquire magazine who has profiled the debonair designer for their March 2011 issue.  There is even a blog dedicated to the designer entitled My Affair with Michael Bastian.  It’s one thing to write a blog.  It’s quite another to have someone write one dedicated to you.  Wonder if the author attends the fashion show.

    Love it- especially the photograph of him on the mantle wearing the navy blazer- he’s incredibly handsome and the apartment isn’t that bad looking either

    I can’t believe it. I had a dream about this apartment and woke up with a plan to dig through my old issues of domino to find it! The desk shot is perfection, and I dream of a sunlit, leafy green view like that from my NYC windows.

    thanks for posting this. I had not seen his apartment and think it’s styled perfectly.

    I love this man! His sense of colour and style…ability to pull it off so effortlessly. I’m sure you would agree with me that it takes effort to look effortless!
