Proving that traditional retail hasn't had its day just yet, Australian basics label, aptly titled Bassike, will open the doors to its first Melbourne store on September 1, the fourth in addition to its existing Paddington, Avalon and Mosman stores. "Bringing Bassike to Melbourne has been a really exciting goal for us to work towards," explains co-founder Deborah Sams. "It's a wonderful milestone for the business." The store will stock the all of the label's ever-growing product categories, which currently includes leather, tailoring, ready-to-wear, organic cotton jersey, eyewear and Japanese denim. In addition, the store will stock a range of international labels including Repetto, Petite Grand and Dries Van Noten eyewear. The store, like the Paddington flagship, was designed by Sydney-based architect Kelvin Ho, and consumes the entire ground floor of an oversized block, with the space configured to adapt to seasonal collections, installations and events.
Bassike: 617 Malvern Road, Hawksburn, Victoria.
