Shades of Gray: Michael Bastian on Monochromatic Dressing


From light to dark and from suits to sweaters, the season's sharpest monochromatic looks prove that gray matters now more than ever.

"Gray always seems to make things feel a bit more sartorial. It has been in every collection since I started. I'm not so into black, but I love a dark gray. I also really love this very pale, hazy gray Italians call nebbia, or fog."
Michael Bastian, Designer
