In just a few years, BODE has evolved into a cultural force in American menswear. Founded by Emily Bode in 2016, the designer’s eponymous brand quickly built a devoted following, and picked up critical acclaim along the way (including nods by the LVMH prize and CFDA award). In 2018, Emily became the first woman to show a collection at New York Fashion Week: Men's.
Beautifully nostalgic, romantic, and most importantly hyper-wearable, the American luxury clothing brand is lauded for its imaginative repurposing of vintage fabrics. Tailor made in New York and New Delhi, BODE’s clothing is cut from antique textiles, quilting, grain sacks and bed linens, and features design embellishments like embroidery, and patchwork. BODE’s sustainable approach to design merges traditional craftsmanship with modern silhouettes.
The brand’s multifaceted design philosophy comes to life in pieces like vintage denim jackets with hand-stitched detailing, a revamped 1950s merino wool cardigan, or a senior cord oversized workwear jacket with hand-drawn illustrations. This love for historical techniques can be attributed to the time Emily spent as a child quilting, antiquing, and vintage shopping with her family. With BODE, the designer hopes to preserve not just the culture she was raised in but the cultures that shape her life and the lives around her.
