The Theme: Celebrating the Woman Who Knows What She Wants (and Just How to Get it)
The Color Palette: Black and White, Pastel Blue, Pastel Pink, Tangerine
The Signature Look of the Collection: Basso has proven that he can translate his luxurious sensibility and expertise in all things fur and exotic leather into a viable eveningwear business that flourishes every season by taking his design approach of sturdy structure and softening it up with fluid, floor-sweeping gowns to scalloped, hip-hugging lace shorts paired with shapely vests and moto jackets. There’s no better fête for a fashion company’s 30th anniversary, as Basso is celebrating this year, than with an incredibly precise, and refreshing, collection. Spring could prove a particular challenge, as fur accents here and there are one thing, but can’t be relied upon heavily to define a silhouette. Basso takes it all in stride, proving that his garments can certainly stand on their own, but don’t they just look polished and 100% complete with a bit of fur nipping at the cuffs?
