Base has undergone much transfiguration over the past few years. Hopping around from different addresses on Lincoln Road and changing the direction and approach of the brand, BASE’s success over the last 20 years can largely be attributed to the co-founder and creative director Steven Giles. Giles was one of the first to envision and embrace lifestyle retailing as a concept that is best described as commerce meets art.
