Collection – GRAND BASSIN S.S18

GRAND BASSIN SS18 BY SAMPLE -CM

The SS18 Grand Bassin collection unites equipment and design pieces.
Sample-cm is bringing a fresh take to our Berlin sportswear perspective as the collection layers and incorporates functionality into both womenswear and unisex garments.

Pairing, matching, combining. The pieces from the collection are designed to be worn in formation, under and within one another, creating an interactivity that has become a signature of the Grand Bassin philosophy.
With this season comes new moves and game strategies for the sporting tribe, both to transform their Grand Bassin pieces and to mobilise them into action.
