Emily Bode‘s affinity for blending antique textiles enamored the audience at Paris Fashion Week, presenting a masterfully cut arrangement of vivid quilts, bed linens, delicate suede and other textured fabrics for a distinctive look that feels both homespun and refined.
Light brown patinas and retro color palettes of cherry red, mint green, light blue, charcoal gray, mustard yellow and burgundy were imbued in long, billowing coats, padded jackets, oversized knitwear, short-sleeve button-ups, pleated trousers and striped cardigans, riffing on vintage ’70s inspirations with a gentle contemporary finish.
Among the slew of vivid garments, one noteworthy piece is a navy trucker jacket, with a vibrant multi-colored spread of circular patches that resemble the shape of poppies. Each patch is intricately arranged in clean diagonal lines, covering the jacket from the shoulders to the cuffs, while keeping the collars and central button regions clean for added contrast. Other highlights like a long coat with faux fur cow prints, a gold-embellished trench coat, checkered jackets, quilted trousers and patchwork sweaters round up the expansive range.
