AN AMERICAN IN SWEDEN
New York: The inspiration behind the F/W 11 Gant collection had a personal meaning for designer Michael Bastian and his work for the label. After making frequent sojourns to Gant’s corporate home in Stockholm, Bastian became fascinated with the way Swedes layer up for their frigid northern winters. The result was a ski-themed collection full of tried-and-true winter classics styled in a cheerfully mismatched Scandinavian way.
