Michael Bastian takes us on an astrological journey for the Fall Collection 2016. This collection, like others strongly appeals to the preppy in me. While this collection is not as conservatively preppy as in the past, I’m very excited about the versatility of the pieces. Cashmere sweaters with a planet motif, exquisitely tailored plaid jackets and wingtip inspired boots are just a few of the items that initially caught my eye. The wool coat with the silver fasteners is among my favorite pieces in the collection. It was paired with an amazing pair of cargo pants with a single front pocket. Michael Bastian mixes the traditional plaid look with a bow tie and semi-untied wingtip boots with slim-fitted cargo pants and I immediately think something similar to the Sportscore trend. But, this is prep! The shoe collection caught my eye as well with the interplay of traditional loafers, wingtip shoes, boots, and an outstanding kiltie loafer paired strategically with each amazing look. This Michael Bastian Fall 2016 Collection is strictly for the preppy and I’m glad.
