The Basement offers an exploration of the current domestic, and international political climate through apparel with the launch of the 'Bridges Not Borders' capsule collection.

If there is one word that can be used to define the positioning of The Basement and its members within the culture they inhabit, it is 'community'. Since the group's conception, they have ensured that they are at the forefront of the wider streetwear community, providing members from diverse backgrounds to connect, collaborative, and converse in authentic environments, giving a voice to those who have otherwise felt silenced. Through this unique position, the group and its members have achieved big within the world of apparel and sneakers, delivering the likes of the exclusive Nike Dunk Low The Basement. With regular apparel releases giving The Basement a physical presence both domestically and overseas, their latest capsule collection stands as a celebration of this unified community in the face of an uncertain political climate. Designed in collaboration with Dutch artist Stisktok, the two-piece apparel drop features the term 'Bridges Not Borders' front and centre, with the artist's illustrations filling the back.
