Hansel from Basel

Fri Nov 2 18:34:10 2012 | 0 Comments


Hansel from Basel is the newest sensation in the realm of hoisery , sockwear, and knit handbags for women. No longer are women wearing socks, tights, and stockings for mere protection from the cold but for fashion and an expression of oneself. We introduced this brand last Fall and have received nothing but great reviews in regards to this brand comfortability and styles. This season we pulled some pieces such as the Dotted Knee Sock from the Hansel from Basel and Rachel Comey collection, which happen to be one of my personal favorites from this season's offerings.  Follow the jump to our online showroom to check out the items we pulled from the Hansel from Basel Fall/ WInter collection. 

Check out this interview with the designer and founder of Hansel from Basel, Hannah Byun, speaking on her motivation for starting her very own line.

    We all know "they" and what "they" say: less is more. And in this case we'd have to agree! We love the stark monochromatic look of the latest tees from Idle.Wild. A clear message and clean images have made us a fan. 


    As a multi-layered luxury brand specializing in the cultivation and design, Idle.wild is devoted to creating objects for the woman who loves and lives wildly. Inspired by the spirit of a place long lost but never forgotten.
