BODE is a relatively new brand. Despite this, Emily Bode has amassed a loyal fan base of antique-garment obsessives just like her. The New York designer’s disciples can usually be identified by stunning one-of-a-kind uniforms, possibly made of victorian bed linens or discarded grain sacks from historic mills, perhaps featuring exquisitely embroidered floral details.

And soon, you may see a BODE believer carting around miniature versions of the label’s clothes — not dissimilar to the shrunken heads used in ancient ritual. The transparent tote, part of its SS20 collection, sees scaled-down BODE-designed clothing suspended in PVC for all to see. If BODE has got the best of you too, you might even want to stuff the accessory with actual life-size garments from Emily and the gang.

Maybe the miniature pieces are a teaser of clothing to come, or perhaps we’ll never get the full versions of these pieces. Who knows? All we know is that we bow to BODE.
