Another American footwear company that was in the trade show was G.H Bass. Bass has been around since 1876, which I think it's amazing for a brand to last a long time and still be so popular with both men and women. The Weejun has been around for more than fifty years. I didn't get to see Bass last year at Capsule; I made it one of my must see for the spring/summer 2013 show. Bass collection was very versatile. It offered boat shoes, penny loafers, fringe loafers with tassels, saddle shoes and oxfords. Bass in my opinion was the most creative, when came to choice of materials for the shoes. For example, Bass had a wing tip oxford with patent leather with clear plastic. Bass reinvented their classic silhouettes by offering the classic Weejuns in metallic colors like gold and silver. The Weejun is a timeless shoe that looks phenomenal on men and women. The women's line was solid. Many of the women loafers came in wonderful pastels colors like pink, blue and yellow. For gentlemen, Bass reworked their classic Weejuns by adding a small pop of creativity by adding contrast color stitching. Also, two tone penny loafers in suede which I think will look magnificent in the fall with dark colored denim. For spring/summer 2013 G.H Bass got really creative on their classic models by offering them in new color ways.
