Christopher Bastin has announced that he will be leaving Gant, after a decade-long run with the Swedish brand, reports WWD.

Bastin joined the company in 2005 as the lead designer of men's shirts before taking the role as creative director and re-launching Gant Rugger in 2010. He is credited with re-vitalizing the brand with his forward approach to classic American menswear. 

“I’ve had a tremendous time at Gant,” said Bastin. “I’m proud of what I brought to the company and where we have taken our creative direction. I feel that my job at Gant is done — it is now time for me to pursue other dreams.”

Bastin presented his final collection for Gant in September at New York Fashion Week.

A new creative director is expected by the end of the year.
