Head of Design Outerwear Collection
Sirid Steingrobe designs and manages the Outdoor Collection department. Coats and jackets are presented with great attention to detail and are essential in every BASLER collection.
Do you have a personal favourite in the current S/S collection 2020?
My highlight is a structured wool coat in a soft mint green. This is the trend colour for 2020. Neo mint is like an iced mint shade and combines technology, science and nature. BASLER women can create beautiful, high-quality outfits with this IT piece and will always be dressed in a modern and suitable style.
What are the trends regarding fit/proportion?
A comfortable and perfect fit is still a must and an important factor that our customers value. I implement trends like athleisure with elements like elastic bands or drawstrings. They are an important part of our collection.
Which materials were used in the S/S 2020 collection? Do they have special characteristics?
In the outerwear collection we used innovative materials like microfibres that are crease-resistant, breathable and light-weight. In addition, most the surfaces are water-repellent, like for example the ultra-light Rainwear fabrics. Weight is also important: the models should not be heavy, but comfortable and light-weight.
Is there a certain jacket trend for 2020?
Expressive patterns on slightly padded and quilted matte-gloss-qualities are still a very important trend topic for outerwear. The cuts will be looser and straighter. Our super-light print jackets are all reversible, so that the customer can always choose between two styles.

What was your source of inspiration for the collection?
Creativity and inspiration for my designs usually come from my travels. I am excited about learning from different cultures. Cultural influences are mirrored in fashion in different ways. These shape my ideas and I try to adapt them to the style of the BASLER women. Glittering effects based on the iridescent surface of a shell or exotic worlds in form of tropical prints are only few examples.
