Bodega Fall/Winter 2017 releases at Bodega, bdgastore.com, and ComplexCON on Saturday, November 4th at 10:00am.
To be shaken out of the ruts of ordinary perception, to be shown for a few timeless hours the outer and inner world, not as they appear to an animal obsessed with survival or to a human being obsessed with words and notions, but as they are apprehended, directly and unconditionally…
It goes without saying that we at Bodega are fervently, wholeheartedly in favor of hidden doors, and the things that might be found behind them. That’s why, this fall, we are encouraging you to find the vending machine at the edge of the universe, and step through the refrigerated doors of perception.
Roam the fully stocked shelves of expanded consciousness. Find your favorite breakfast cereal fortified with vitamin love and essential knowledge. Quench your thirst for cosmic revelation with Third Eye Cola. Scrub away the built up grime of a lifetime’s worth of limited perspective and preconceived notions with Ego Death household cleanser. Grab a prepaid calling card to every conceivable plane of existence.
Imagine it, being able to feel and sense colors, to see objects from angles that the geometry of the mundane mind could never conceive of, to pull on a hoodie and become one with it, secure in the knowledge that it was knit at the creation of all things and awaiting the moment that you would arrive. This is fashion in the fourth dimension.
You’ll thank us when you get back to Earth. Take it from us. We’re experts on hidden doors.
They’re gonna talk to you, and talk to you, and talk to you about individual freedom. But they see a free individual, it’s gonna scare ‘em.
Readjusting to the daily grind after an enlightening journey to the far reaches of the psyche can be difficult. That’s why a lot of people prefer to take their newly liberated awareness on the road. It’s not just an individual flight to freedom, it’s a quest to spread your newfound wisdom across the highways, interstates, streets and back roads of America.
Today’s intergalactic sages need to meet the modern needs of an active lifestyle, so they need a wardrobe that can keep up. You never know when you’ll need to ride out a bad trip or split from some new age Nixons. That’s why bell-bottoms and macramé are out and sportswear is in. This is a message for all the tie dye, groovy color, blissed out flower children: turn on, tune in, gear up. The 21st century is here, and it needs you now more than ever.
