Peter Davis' Status Update: Michael Bastian Scores for Gant

Peter Davis
My favorite fashion designer to wear, the alarmingly handsome Michael Bastian, unveiled his collaboration with Gant by staging a presentation at old-school St. Anthony's Memorial Gym on Thompson Street. The younger, more inexpensive Gant by MB collection is inspired by preppy pastime lacrosse. "Lacrosse is fascinating to me," says Bastian. "I love that this is this American sport that may not be known around the world." One of the tableaux of hot jocky models was an after-game, pre-shower scene. "I love a locker room scene," gushed WWD's David Lipke, eye-balling the best-looking melange of male models (one in a Gant by MB towel) seen all week. Hunks aside, the clothes were sporty and modern -- think rugby shirts that lace up the front and sweaters emblazoned with lacrosse sticks. Score for Team Bastian!
