Winner of the 2011 Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Awards: Menswear Designer of the Year, Michael Bastian first launched his line in 2006 with only men's wear. Four years later on, Michael Bastian has expanded GANT by Michael Bastian to include womenswear and also distributed in 60 countries worldwide. GANT also has a passion for responsible fashion, with a concern for the key social and environmental aspects of sustainability and ensuring that the clothes are free from hazardous chemicals from suppliers. This year's collection is inspired by the Galapagos Islands and carried on a voyager theme that included technical gear (i.e. nylon windbreakers with Aertex linings), Ecuadorian-print influenced knits, lace-up khaki shirtdresses, Baja hoodies, and camouflage cargo pants.
