“If God dropped acid, would he see people? - Steven Wright
Today we're going to LA to visit UNION and see some of the latest and greatest from one of the hottest (yet still under the radar) menswear brands, BODE.
You Should Know About Union Los Angeles
Union is one of the most well-respected menswear shops in the U.S, known for carrying the most progressive brands from all around the globey globe. So it stands to reason they are currently carrying some of the freshest things from BODE.
BODE is a men's clothing brand that expresses a healthy nostalgia for past craftsmanship by evoking the memories of yesteryear.
How? Through the study (and thoughtful use) of historical vintage techniques and fabrics. The brand began and continues to gain stature with the creation of handmade garments out of vintage fabrics.
Bode was the first female designer to show at NYFW: Men's. She has been paving the way for women entrepreneurs and designers in the menswear industry with her unique narratives. It begun with workwear silhouettes, blended with female-centric traditions of quilting and mending garments of antique textiles. Each and every piece created reinvigorates through the art of storytelling.
THIS LONG SLEEVE POLO SWEATER IS MADE FROM FINE MERINO WOOL. IT IS INSPIRED BY A 1960S CYCLING SWEATER AND FEATURES GREEN, YELLOW, BLACK AND RED STRIPES ON THE COLLAR AND SLEEVES. THERE IS A SMALL BODE LOGO EMBROIDERED ON THE CHEST.
Thirty years later, this Tinker Hatfield-designed silhouette has stood the test of time. If anything, its longevity is starting to test time itself—how can an outdoors-inspired sneaker designed in 1991 still hold up today? Classic stylings with today's touches. An iconic inner bootie and premium upper have always offered one-of-a-kind comfort and durability, but this modern makeup has a stretchier collar and softer foam midsole, making it easier to slip on and even more comfortable on the trails. Now returning in Trails End Brown and Prism Violet, celebrate this ACG OG as it continues its legacy for another decade.
There you have it, one of the hottest brands BODE from one of the hottest shops, UNION.
