Creative Director of Gant Christopher Bastin steps down

Endaba Group

Christopher Bastin joined the menswear clothing brand in 2005 as Lead Designer for men’s shirts and was appointed to Creative Director in 2012. Gant has said they are currently looking for his replacement, which they hope to fill before the end of the year. Bastin has left as he “feel[s] that my job at Gant is done, it is now time for me to pursue other dreams.”

Bastin’s exit is not expected to have any effect on the design direction of the brand. Patrik Nilsson, Chief Executive of Gant, said “the design of the collection is a team effort. Our organisation is built around this core principle and I’m very confident in the product creation team allowing us to take ample time to find the right replacement.”
