Basso and Brooke have been one of our favourite design duos for a long time. The things they can do with digital printing has always astonished us. So to find that they now use a blue F-1000 professional garment steamer, and will use it at London Fashion Week, makes us smile like Cheshire cats.
“Thanks so much for the steamer, it arrived safe and sound and is lovely addition to the studio.”
Check out their latest collection here. Their biog reads like this:
Basso & Brooke were the first ever winners of London’s prestigious Fashion Fringe Award in 2004. They won the competition with a collection that was sexuality exuberant, using digital prints that appeared classic and Liberty-esque but on closer inspection were an orgiastic carnival of sexual liberation and allegories of power.
With a selection panel that included among its members Rosemarie Bravo, Alexandra Shulman (Editor in Chief, Vogue UK) and Hamish Bowles of US Vogue, this award was instituted and directed by Colin McDowell for in order to discover and launch particularly promising up-and-coming designers.Soon after winning the prize, Basso & Brooke entered a production and distribution agreement with the Aeffe Group, who also represent the Alberta Ferretti, Moschino, Narciso Rodriguez, Jean Paul Gaultier and Pollini brands.Two people from very different cultures and design disciplines – Chris, fashion; and Bruno, Graphic design, create the label. They are the pioneers of the digital print process in fashion.”
