The essence of the lifestyle brand reflects the personal values of its designers. "Initially BassamFellows began because I couldn’t find furniture to fit within buildings I was designing." says Craig Bassam. "We figured, why not take that a step further and design luxury clothing that is to our taste?"
“In general, everybody is so inundated with stuff," explains Fellows. "We’re trying to have this superedited collection. We’re being very particular about the singular things we love and cherish,” he said. “I always talk about how if I removed everything I own that doesn’t fit well or that has details I don’t quite like, what would be left is the kind of stuff that we want to create.”
Among recent releases are Sylvan and Petrichor, fragrant candles in elegantly crafted brushed brass cups. Their delicate, woody scents take inspiration from the modernist architecture and vibrant surrounds of BassamFellows’ residences on the East and West Coasts of America.
The duo plans to extend the 'essentials' collection with pieces like a tailored jacket and select outerwear. But perhaps unsurprisingly, given the expanse of Milan's Design Week activities, the product most highly prized by attendees was the label's comfortable, hand-made Italian boots.
