Michael Bastian’s reimagined preppy shirts and tops

Samurai-style details add an interesting edge to classic menswear

American designer Michael Bastian often rethinks preppy items by adding or enhancing details. This season he’s taken a cotton/linen denim-look shirt (£300) and created a quilted effect on the collar and cuffs using trapunto-style rows of stitching that are inspired by the panelling on a samurai costume. Cotton sweatshirts (£260) also feature the stitching – as shoulder panels or a deep V.
