Established in 2006 by Deborah Sams and Mary Lou Ryan, the bassike philos-ophy centres around high-end design and construction with a commitment to sustainable manufacturing. Bassike launched the original collection of organ-ic cotton jersey before quickly evolving and expanding, now offering men’s and women’s ready to wear mainline, denim made in Japan, accessories, footwear and swim collections. Bassike is featured in over 100 stockists globally including David Jones, Net-A-Porter and Lane Crawford, and has 11 stores in Australia and a flagship store in Venice, California.
The bassike Swim 18 capsule collection consists of an edited range of swimwear classics. The shapes are intelligently designed for a woman’s body and are made in Australia using sustainable Italian lycra. To complement the swim pieces, the designers have created a range of light cotton separates consisting of shirting, kaftans, scarves and hats.
