on the runway. Among the watches that complemented Bastians’ collection of tailored clothing, sportswear and accessories were the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph Perpetual Calendar, the Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph 44mm and the Royal Oak Offshore Diver in ceramic.

Bastian’s inspiration for the season was the American painter Andrew Wyeth and his dark, spare, introspective vision of Maine and New England.  The collection color palette was darker than in previous seasons and included black, olive, red, indigo with brighter hues of raincoat yellow and hunter orange for added effect.  Fabrics were rugged yet luxurious with brushed tweeds, leather, moleskin and shearling use to great effect.
