Michael Bastian Collaborates on Accessories

Designer is teaming up with hat designer Eugenia Kim and shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo, who are both based in New York.

MICHAEL BASTIAN ACCESSORIZES: Michael Bastian is going for a head-to-toe look with his newest collaborations with hat designer Eugenia Kim and shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo, who are both based in New York. The four styles of hats and three styles of sneakers and shoes — in various colors and materials, such as seersucker, glazed leather and suedes — will hit retail for spring '13. Retailers will get a first look at the offerings during Milan market. “This season I spent a lot of time exploring locations outside of New York City and delving into Americana so it made perfect sense to partner with Michael Bastian,” said Ingelmo of the footwear designs, which will retail from $495 to $695. This is the first hat collaboration for Bastian and the second footwear collaboration, having previously created slippers and loafers with Stubbs & Wootton.
