Australian brand Bless'ed Are The Meek has caught on to the need for wardrobe staples and created its very own basics collection dubbed B.C (an acronym for Basics Collection). But before you start writing the range off as just another plain-old T-shirts and tights range, the label's designer, Tarek Kourhani, wants us to know this B.C is not your standard basic offering.
"The concept is not about creating another basics range, but to provide a base collection that can be easily integrated with the Bless'ed Are The Meek main line," Kourhani explains. "There are no jeans or denim jackets, just modern, polished, on-trend shapes that work for everybody, every day.”
By making use of the clean lines and minimalist aesthetic so prevalent in Scandinavian design, Bless'ed Are The Meek taps into luxurious fabrics like high-twist crepe, 80s count cotton poplin, superfine voile, modal jersey, double-faced sateen and extra-soft lambskin. Think a monochromatic palette with pops of orange worked onto flattering shapes like boxy shifts, midi dresses, tailored crops and slouchy shirts.
Not only can these pieces, ranging from $79.95 to $349.95, seamlessly slot into your wardrobe among your existing goodies, they also speak volumes all on their own. We're predicting B.C will be a big hit for an effortless office getup. Extra points are given as you don't need to drop home for an outfit change before social affairs. The range will be available to buy online in August.
