spotlight: base range

base rangeThe fashion market is saturated with under the radar designers so when I discover a brand like Base Range, where the product is not only gorgeous, but made from sustainable fabrics as well, I’m super grateful for having this platform to share.  I was recently shopping in a local boutique called Personnel and spotted a table presentation full of beautiful bras (and underwear).  Equal parts clean, sexy, feminine and sporty, I was cynical about the bras also being supportive.  It’s been an upward battle to find an aesthetically pleasing bra that also functions well since I detest underwire, lining, thick straps and padding.  I wear a C cup and am not interested in an undergarment that feels like a full metal jacket or can be found on a playmate.  Millions of bra specialists have told me that it’s never going to happen, but alas – if you seek it, you shall find.  Base Range, founded in Copenhagen, is a line of sustainable under and easy wear with a design sensibility that balances energies of both the modern and natural worlds.  “The focus is on working with high quality, organic fabrics in innovative ways that benefits both producer and consumer while minimizing environmental impact.”  I wound up purchasing the soft bra which was not only lovely looking and comfortable, but supportive too.  AND environmentally friendly.  A major soul style win.  Free-standing Base Range stores are only open in Europe, but shop their e-commerce site which ships to the states and includes their full line of goods.  The brand can also be found at Net-a-Porter, La GarconneOpening Ceremony and Need Supply Co.  Enjoy!
