Christopher Bastin was born 1973 in Stockholm, Sweden. He started his career in the fashion industry in 1992 at the Swedish denim hotspot Solo. Christopher held various positions at H&M, Whyred and Acne as Product Manager and buyer before joining GANT in 2005, when he began his designer career in earnest. His first mission was to design a men’s shirt range. Working alongside several industry veterans, he learned the trade of fabric and garment design – kindling his passion for American Sportswear.
Christopher has been the designer and Creative Director for GANT Rugger, which was re-launched under his direction with the spring/summer 2010 collection. He was recently appointed Creative Director of all of GANT.
