Armand Basi

What factors tie these pictures together? Substance, volume and amazing use of colour and texture.

Armand Basi is a spanish family-owned business based in Spain. The brand was created in 1986, but the origins of the brand stem from 1948 when the label started making quality knitwear sold in the most pretigious establishments in Spain. The brand went international in 1994, started selling lifestyle products like eyewear and homewares in 2002, and in 2006, Marcus Lupfer is brought onboard as the womenswear designer.

The designs are so wearable, yet so well formed. Of course the pair of heels at the top may need to be well-cared for, but isn't fashion for wearing anyway?
