Base range is a collection of sustainable under and easy wear. Reflecting the founders background - in arts, fashion and textile and based in Copenhagen and Toulouse - the collection is clean and functional style. With mindfully chosen soft and organic materials, Base range products offer a simple and essential range of beautifully cut pieces, from bodysuits to tee-shirts, conceived to last longer, to be loved longer.
Who are you?
We're two, Marie Louise who designs the collection and lives in Copenhagen with her two kids, and Blandine who lives in the south of France with her family.
How did you start in fashion?
We both have mother and grandmother who gave us the love of quality fabrics and creativity. Marie Louise went to the Royal Danish Art School and I graduated from IFM. We both work on fashion business from a long time, ML created Popupshop and I worked for Surface To Air.
How would you define your style?
Base Range is a real balance between our two worlds, her Scandanivian style, minimalist, boyish, almost sportswear, and my french touch, more feminine and delicate. The most important is that we feel confortable with what we wear. Our clothes are the mirror of our life style.
What inspires you?
Our friends, family, places where we travel. To be part of something, to do something together is what inspired us. We have a whole vision of what we love, but it really lives when we both meet.
