Haspel Clothing has partnered with G.H. Bass & Co. on a casual footwear capsule for spring.
The G.H. Bass & Co. x Haspel capsule will consist of five styles — a boat shoe, driver, buck, sneaker and the footwear brand’s signature Bass Weejuns penny loafer. They will sell for $99 and $155.
The brands both boast a long history, with Bass being founded in Maine in 1876 and Haspel getting its start in New Orleans in 1909.
“At Haspel, we’re always thinking about partnerships that will encourage our customers to try something new,” said Laurie Haspel, president and chief executive officer of Haspel Clothing. “Since 1909, suiting has been our specialty. While we’ve successfully introduced sportswear and other accessories into the collection, we have consistently maintained a watchful eye on footwear.”
Amie Freedland, creative director of G.H. Bass, said the brands’ “shared values — consistent quality and timeless design — have resulted in generations of customers whose loyalty has never wavered. We look forward to bringing trusted, reliable and beautifully styled footwear to our customers throughout the country.”
The G.H. Bass & Co. x Haspel collection will be available online at both companies’ web sites in the spring.
Haspel is a family-owned men’s brand best known for inventing the seersucker suit. B.H. Bass is a division of G-III Apparel Group.
