Menswear aficionado and CFDA darling Michael Bastian was in Miami recently to promote his line. Our sister site Racked Miami sat down with the designer to get his take on the brand's SS14 line and in the process uncovered Bastian's go-to hangover strategy.
When asked what his favorite closet staple was, Bastian replied, "A pink oxford—for days you're hungover. A sales guy at Bergdorf Goodman told me that when I worked there and it's the best thing anyone has ever told me about menswear. Everybody looks better in a pink shirt—a little fresher, a little more alive. We always have a pink shirt in the line and this season it says, "This is my hangover shirt" on the collar."
