Bassin and Brown is a British Accessory brand established in 2014. The founder Mel Bassin had previously worked at Liberty of London for 20 years. He started his career as a menswear department manager, later as an assistant buyer and then buyer for 20 satellite Liberty stores in both men’s and ladies’ fashion. He was later promoted to the role of men’s accessory buyer for the flagship Liberty store on Regent St, London, England
Throughout his time as buyer at Liberty he worked with the fantastic array of Liberty fabrics and prints helping to produce seasonal, Liberty’s own label collections in both men’s and women’s fashion for the Liberty satellite stores between 1989 and 1996. Mel also helped to produce, coordinate and design the Liberty’s own men’s label ranges from the late 1980’s to 2000.
The Bassin and Brown range was inspired by working in such a unique fabulous store with great fabrics and designs and also by the influence of many, many inspirational people. Mel’s philosophy for the Bassin and Brown brand is to source and develop colourful, eclectic, unusual men’s and unisex accessories from around the world - with just a touch of eccentricity.
