Menswear brand Bode just opened its very first flagship location in Manhattan. This past Monday the glitterati of New York descended onto Hester Street in the Lower East Side to celebrate the momentous occasion.

Emily Adams Bode envisioned the store as a place where customers could have a relaxed and private shopping experience and take their time with the clothing. After selling out of her home and then studio for 3 years, she realized her clients enjoy an intimate shopping experience in a space that represents the ethos of the brand. The store is special for Emily, due to her background working retail at Isabel Marant and smaller boutiques in Lower Manhattan.

A hand-painted fresco, chrome deco lighting fixtures, green billiards felt lining the dressing rooms are some of the standout details in the space. A key detail in the store is a hand-painted clay fountain from the 1890s that was reclaimed from a building in Chicago and built into the space in working order. The space will feature new collaborative furniture by Bode and Green River Project, like a mahogany rail car sofa with horse blanket upholstery and a dining chair to match.

The store will stock a selection of one-of-a-kind garments made from historical and domestic textiles in menswear silhouettes, along with a selection of pieces from Bode's collections.
