NEW YORK - He describes the collection of skinny ties, collegiate jackets, and two-tone sunglasses as his “big sloppy Valentine to Boston.’’ Designer Michael Bastian, who graduated from Babson College in 1987, designed his entire Fall/Winter 2012 line around his memories of Boston from the 1980s. He presented the collection yesterday at Fashion Week.
“This is my most personal season to date,’’ the designer said. “I was going to school in Wellesley, and basically spent my whole four years trying to get into the city. I was riding the T back and forth. I really just fell in love with that town.’’
