Led by Creative Director and industry veteran Anne Hahn-Waddell, the Bassett McNab Fall 2020 collection consists of seven distinct patterns each offered in three to six colorways with an additional 25 SKUs of supporting woven fabrics.
"Sifting through the archive images was like paging through an old high school yearbook," says Hahn-Waddell. "I remember so many of the patterns – some with dated color combinations so outrageous I had to smile! The archives definitely had a unique Basset McNab voice that, with some editing, I knew would be relevant. Honoring the original brand voice while updating new patterns resulted in a classic, modern American style, like the legacy of design greats like Elsie de Wolfe, David Hicks and Dorothy Draper, who were all pioneers of a brighter, lighter, and more streamlined style that we still celebrate today."
The new Bassett McNab collection is marked by reimagined chinoiserie, traditional ikats, subtle textures, garden florals and classic trellis fretwork. The color stories encompass shades of blue and teal, light neutral, desert corals with soft pinks, and a few saturated shades of gray and navy. The designs marry approachability with style and sophistication.
