Base Range’s sustainable easy wear has been a firm favourite for a number of seasons now. Creating modern basics for
all occasions, their garments and luxe intimates have become a bit of a necessity in the Monk House Design wardrobe.
Endlessly wearable, their innovative use of sustainable fabrication, as well as commitment to creating timeless pieces
for everyday women, has seen them go from strength to strength.
This season, in addition to receiving a range of their their garments and intimate wear, we’ve also been lucky enough
to get our hands on pieces from Base Range’s debut collaboration with French/German label Bless.
Founded in 1995 and based in Paris and Berlin, Bless is more than just a fashion label. Moving beyond traditional
definitions, their work spans realms of art, fashion and lifestyle products. Blurring lines between designer and artist
they describe their role as being the ‘re-definer’.
Unpredictable and dynamic, their unique approach to creating is inextricably connected to their way of life. Bless’
commitment to creating products that aren’t just “spectacular catwalk items, but aim to be all time favourites for
everyday life” is a refreshing and unique approach that we dig. A belief in “dasein” or thereness is, much like
BASE Range, a constant dedication to the production of garments that have meaning beyond their materiality.
The collaboration has resulted in an amazing top and bottom set cut from BASE's fine Bamboo jersey fabric, and is
produced in their Portuguese factory. Depicting mundane scenes direct from Bless’s concept stores and studios,
we’re confronted with unique and beautiful images by Dan McMahon that seem almost surreal.
At Monk House we have the "Pierre Doze" design which shows a living room with a guy sleeping on a couch.
