Established in July 2016
Bode is a luxury menswear brand that expresses a sentimentality for the past through the study of personal narratives and historical techniques. Modern workwear silhouettes united with female-centric traditions of quilting, mending, and appliqué shape the collections. Each piece tells a story, and is tailor made in New York.
Bode was the first female designer to show at NYFW: Men’s. She’s paving the way for women entrepreneurs in the menswear industry. The brand began with a collection of one-of-a-kind garments composed entirely of antique textiles and continues to reinvigorate American menswear through the art of storytelling.
