BODE FW23 Men's Delivers a Master Class in Fashion History
Marking the brand’s first menswear collection.
Offering a fashion-forward look at history, Emily in Paris takes on an entirely different meaning as BODE‘s latest collection exudes a decidedly Americana aesthetic. A pair of satin pants adorned with pivotal years join a patchwork coat, illustrating local herbs, whereas buttery leather jackets arrive with fringe detailing, straight out of a Western film, while bold, rodeo-ready shirts are updated with a leg-baring skirt.
Sharp tailoring adds structure as a pale yellow pinstripe suit nods to women’s entry into the workforce, flaunting a vintage-inspired floral bra underneath. Elsewhere, a modest, floor-length tartan gown gives off a bit of a cold shoulder with daring clavicle cut-outs.
A regal crimson mid-length frock with ornate gold detailing and a plunging neckline pays tribute to Bode’s ever-elegant grandmother as stunning sheer chain mail slip dresses harken back to the late 1920s. A decadent dress fit for a flapper would make Daisy Buchanan jealous, while a dazzling sequined halter gown undoubtedly steals the show.
BODE is continuing the holiday spirit as verdant layers of green tulle are adorned with ornaments and worn with a matching hat for added festive measure. The brand keeps the party going with a flashy tuxedo embroidered with bubbly bottles of champagne and juicy pineapples. A wedding dress, complete with a veil and bouquet, delivers a romantic final conclusion to the show.
