Needless to say, we are beyond excited that today is the last day of winter. FAREWELL. Be gone cold days. While you’ve certainly had some lovely moments, you’ve been around now for far.too.long.
We can’t wait to unveil what’s new for Basil Bangs this season, with the full range to be released online shortly – keep your eyes peeled.
In the meantime, we say Hello, spring. Welcome back.

It was nothing but sunny blue skies over the weekend here in Sydney and Basil was out in all his glory. Spotted beachside and loving every minute of sandy toes, icy cold beers and that familiar feeling of salty skin…

Slim Aarons is a very famous personality and photographer who lead an amazing life capturing the lives of the rich and famous. Aarons made his career out of what he called “photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” “I knew everyone,” he said in an interview with The (London) Independent in 2002. “They would invite me to one of their parties because they knew I wouldn’t hurt them. I was one of them.”
Today, a few of our favourites to remind you of the summer ahead.
