It is recommended by many to only wear 2 or 3 colors on an outfit, yet Michael Bastian is groundbreaking and shows us that one can mix and match as many colors and textures as you please, and still have visual harmony. The above outfit has a velvet jacket, which is a must for Fall/Winter, yet the way it is worn is not very F/W like but rather with a French Riviera Summer twist. The jacket is paired with a white shirt, a red "checkered" scarf, an oxford trouser, what appears to be a "python" belt and some slippers with "Navajo" motiffs.
A modern and "funky" version of the 60s mod and English gentlemen look comes with this outfit, just because it's Fall/Winter it doesn't mean you have to dress all in dark colors...add some color with orange socks, and spice it up with some python gloves.
The comeback of the double breasted jacket is evident in this season, just like in Milan and Paris, Michael Bastian brought it to New York with this ensemble which is a combination of American school uniform with Saville Row.
