Basso and Brooke retrospective

Pulling It All Together

As part of Berlin Fashion Week, Basso & Brooke put together a retrospective which styled eight season's worth of clothing together in one show. Into the blender they went and out they came, undeniably Basso & Brooke and with such dizzying combinations of print and color and layering that we're pretty sure that whole plaid on plaid thing won't be such a big deal anymore. The 'collection' was absolutely stunning and welcomed after a season of transparencies and monochromatic nude looks. We can't help but think it must have been extra fun (and maybe not as laborious as it appears?) for the designers Christopher Brooke and Bruno Basso to sift through their previous collections and pick out their favorite pieces to re-show. We were happy to see this orange jacket from their Fall 08 show make it into the retrospective (left). If only because it made us like the darn thing ten times more, and debunked our initial impression which was 'Now how could you possibly wear that without the matching orange tights?'. We kid. Obviously this jacket can stand all on its own and so, it seems, can a lot of Basso & Brooke's designs. Take a moment to marvel.
