Basil Racuk is one of those unhinged types... in a good way. He was an early adopter of the NWBLK concept and his infectious energy is a reckoner. Basil makes leather bags. These are the type of bag that was made when Poppa Prada had a little storefront on the cobblestone streets of Italy at the turn of the century: sharp aesthetic, meticulous design, crafted with care... And they're gorgeous.
Basil is offering a couple very special packages at the BLK Saturday Sale including a ridiculously good opportunity to work with him on a custom bag. Come meet him in person Saturday.
