Brand to Watch: BODE

Indeed not new and definitely not a hidden gem, but we cannot help adding BODE to our Brand to Watch series as it simply blows us away. For three plus years, Emily Adams Bode has offered her luxury menswear and beyond brand to the world. It’s, in her words, a brand that “expresses a sentimentality for the past through the study of personal narratives and historical techniques”. The silhouettes are taken from (traditionally masculine) workwear, but finished with female-centric traditions of quilting and mending. Emily Adams bode was the first female designer to show at New York Fashion Ween Men’s. How strange, you think. That it hasn’t happened sooner. But how great, that BODE was first. Setting the bar so high we want to sell everything we own and invest in a custom patchwork jacket.

Do yourself a favor and visit Bode here, and follow here.
