Baritone, gregarious, directorial — Dennis Basso is more often than not heard before seen. But once he does appear, he can pretty much command the room merely by walking into it. Warm and effervescent, tagging on a hug to the requisite air kiss, greeting visitors with a hey-how-are-you-honey like he is genuinely glad to see them.
Not-so-New-York as that might be, somehow the designer has made buying his clothes a bit like Old Home Week. On an unseasonably warm January day, a few shoppers greeted the handsome doorman at Basso’s Madison Avenue boutique with “I’m here to see Dennis.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
