Continuing the pastoral, dreamlike aesthetic affirmed by its Spring/Summer 2019 presentation, New York’s Bode returns with another expansive assortment of hand-crafted wearables. First showcased via a compact musical presentation, the lookbook situates the looks inside the workshop of longtime partner Green River Project, inspired by the adolescence of art historian and gallerist Todd Alden.
Alongside the richly color-blocked shirt-and-pant sets, standouts include a shawl collar fleece jacket, hand-illustrated chore jacket, loosely-woven cardigan and a transparent coat lined with dozens of pennies. Bode’s familiar workwear influences are expanded upon via retro overcoats and boxy striped pants, occasionally upgraded with a ’70s-style flared hem. Patchwork suits keep the focus on the unmissable quality of the construction, with more adventurous layers further develop Bode’s storytelling — these range from a belted safari jacket to a slouchy sweater emblazoned with intarsia Bode branding.
The new collection hits Bode’s website and stockists in the coming months.
Elsewhere at New York Fashion Week, DYNE showcased its new garments on readymade mannequins.
