Quite Continental Loves: Bass ❤ Rachel Antonoff
24/03/2011 § Leave a comment
I have a longstanding love for G.H. Bass and Co. We’ve already discussed my childhood demand for Bass Weejuns, and it’s a little known fact that a favorite accessory of mine is actually a Bass belt I stole from my father sometime in the early nineties. So on one of my recent visits to the Bass site, I was very pleased to see a new collaboration with a designer that I have had my eye on since 2009 — New York design darling Rachel Antonoff. I immediately recognized a kindred style spirit upon viewing her very first solo collection for spring 2009. I adore her penchant for bows, the little skirt, sensual necklines, luxurious textures and her rapt attention to small detailing. She is the perfect combination of whimsy and nostalgia, but her collections are decidedly au courant. If you are not familiar with her work, please do spend a bit of time meandering through her website!
Is it really any wonder that I am in love with the Bass ❤ Rachel Antonoff shoes? My favorites follow below, but there is a broader collection you must see. Head over to Bass to pick your favorites.
