Bode Cardigans

Burgeoning New York designer Emily Bode swiftly earned acclaim for her namesake label Bode (pronounced Boh-dee) by venturesomely fashioning a myriad of antiquated, one-of-a-kind textiles into classic workwear silhouettes. Less than a year after founding the label in 2016, she became the first female menswear designer to present at Men's New York Fashion Week. During her years spent obtaining a dual degree in menswear design and philosophy, she perfected her remarkable ability to track down, treat, and, ultimately, transform rare and archaic fabrics from around the globe into vintage-inflected apparel. Inspired by childhood visits to antique market, which awakened a love of fabrics and patterns of yore, Bode’s collections are lovingly produced from century-old tablecloths, grain sacks, and Victorian bed linens – to name but a few sources. Beautiful floral embroidered weaves are cut into antiquarian shirts, while timeworn quilts – her calling card – are tirelessly treated with historical techniques and transformed into a tapestry of coats. Bode’s collections draw inspiration from sources close to the designer’s heart: from the treasures found in her uncle’s attic in the South of France to the musings of a Cape Cod botanist-turned-quilt-dealer. Intimate and utterly timeless, Bode’s refurbished garments cleverly counterweigh the predominantly streetwear-heavy menswear landscape.
