This year has been pivotal in the young life of the Michael Bastian business.
After ending his license relationship in November with the backer that first launched his line in 2006, Bastian took the fall 2011 season off to regroup and is now reintroducing the collection for spring. The aim of the transition is to lower prices in order to become more competitive at retail while growing the label into a bigger independent brand.
