American label Bode gales at Paris Fashion Week, just in time for the Spring/Summer 2020 season. The brand, headed by CFDA Emerging Designer of the Year Emily Bode, who’s also 2019 LVMH prize finalist, exquisitely delivered an eclectic range of experimental tailored pieces, fused with a number of traditional references melding the designer’s love for quilting, appliques and surface-pattern artistry. The collection categorised a vastity of flowing silhouettes, decked by a deconstructed sense of premium tailoring. The colourway consists in a mixture of glowing golds, reds and meek browns, with a huge presence of greens and regal blues. Geometry fronts traditionalism in garment-making, turning techniques such as crocheting into arresting ways of “fashioning” striking “fashion”. Adorned and embellished by a refined galore, Bode’s collection saw slick textural notions of embroidered gold satin, bejewelled by an elegant sartorial poise, easily perceptible among patches and statement motifs throughout the collection.
