Started by Emily Adams Bode in 2016, BODE is a brand that links the sentimentality and artisanship of yesteryear with modern takes on classic silhouettes. By repurposing historic materials from the past and reimagining them in a new context, BODE's pieces carry a dream like, ethereal aura.
From work jackets and pants surgically crafted from antique quilts to the excavation, celebration, and reinterpretation of Indiana's senior chord trend from the early to mid 20th century, Bode's reinterpretations are the perfect vehicle to highlight her eye for design while shining a spotlight on old textiles, arguing for both their beauty and their relevance in luxury menswear today.
THIS JACKET IS INSPIRED BY A SOUVENIR JACKET, CIRCA 1940S.
