The fashion industry has a disastrous impact on the environment. In fact, it's the second largest polluter in the world and the environmental damage is only increasing as the industry grows. This is one of many reasons to love and respect labels like Bode. New York based magpie Emily Bode has been designing menswear since 2016, creating one-of-a-kind and limited run clothing fabricated almost entirely out of vintage textiles, quilts, denim and tablecloths. Her obsession with ephemera, and her talent for storytelling, is the catalyst behind her modern workwear silhouettes, with each piece involving quilting, mending or reworking of some kind. Her fall collection is an ode to Todd Alden, a New York gallerist - and some of my favorite pieces include a mustard corduroy suit with hand drawn illustrations (a similar one worn by Leon Bridges at the Grammys this year!), hand-embroidered and sheer souvenir shirts, and wool jackets embellished with beads and stones. Bode may be made for men, but that doesn't stop be from fangirling.
This fashion is super cool!
