Bas supplied us always with the right and necessary trend information and helped us in building up to date collections. He let us think out-of-the-box and put his creative mind in our commercial collections. We could always count on Bas.

I have know Bas since he was a tutor at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, where I was studying fashion design. He was teaching “applied design”. But teaching that at the Rietveld is quite a hard job to do. Giving assignments as “design a travel collection”: he imagined design solutions for picking up you mobilephone with big gloves or something like that. But we students travelled i.e. to our dreams, a world where everything is white or hell. He always kept a very open mind to our concepts and worked together with us, keeping in mind our freedom whilst at the same time pushing for concrete items. Quite an achievement!
