Runway Traffic: Bastiaan
Published January 28, 2009
Last week, Bastiaan (Re:Quest) treated the runways in Milan and Paris like a treadmill. He was everywhere, with no end in sight. He can wear anything—leather trousers, a skirt; shawl collr, shirtless. We wanted to get him talking before hitting New York; hence this questionnaire.
Shows walked Milan: Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Gianfranco Ferré, Salvatore Ferragamo, Moschino, Zegna, Costume National, Montclair, Thom Browne.
Shows walked Paris: Hugo Boss, Louis Vuitton, Dries Van Noten , Kenzo , Junya Watanabe , Julius.
