Ariel Bassan

Textile, Fashion & Jewerly Design

“Many of the choices I make steer me towards side roads and bystreets, rather than the high road. Creating a brand of tailored and minimalist menswear in Israel, considering Israeli fashion sense and style, definitely felt like such a decision, and I made it with a firm conviction and with my eyes wide open".

Fashion designer Ariel Bassan, a graduate of Holon Institute of Technology (interior design) and Parsons School of Design, New York, founded his eponymous menswear brand in 2015. His designs offer a minimalist, modern, subtle and nuanced interpretation of traditional tailoring, a clean and meticulous look based on high quality garments available as ready to wear, upcycled or made to order items.

Bassan was nominated for the 2022 Edmond de Rothschild Design Award for Emerging Fashion, Textile, and Jewelry Designers.
