B DODI IS A DARK TRIBAL AND IRREVERENT FASHION BRAND CREATED TO HELP UNLEASH YOUR INNER DEMON
Founded in 2015 in London by Beatrice Dodi, B Dodi was born by merging a dark and underground aesthetic with futuristic dreams and mystical tales. A conceptual and contemporary fashion label with a mission that goes beyond fashion and taps into the spiritual realm of consciousness. We envision a world where magic and reality are intertwined, where humans transcend time and space, just like gender-fluid warriors in the Universe.
All the genderless accessories are designed and handcrafted in the East London atelier, where we strive for quality and originality, expressed through refined craftsmanship in the construction of tribal leather and metallic accessories.
Each collection is inspired by ancestral symbols of Renewal, Regeneration, and Spiritual Realization infused with an avant-garde metallic design. Our fashion have a relaxed and underground edge, to help you feel at ease while you space travel between Galaxies and while you float in the City.
MEET THE FOUNDER – Beatrice Dodi
Born in Parma, Italy, Beatrice is a self-taught, multidisciplinary artist trained in leather saddlery and metalsmithing. She first started designing and making costumes for independent theatres in Bologna, alongside her studies in Cinema at the cult DAMS University. Her travels across the world and deep interest for ancient cultures and mythology merge into the futuristic fashion brand which focuses on design excellence, expert craftsmanship, and sustainability in the making process.
Her fashion adventure in London began with designing and constructing ear-cuffs and within a year she challenged herself to expand into leather accessories with an innovative style and unique yet minimalistic aesthetic. The dream for the future is to continue revolutionising accessories for men, women and everyone in between, that want to stand out and look for that special memorable piece.
Q&A WITH BEATRICE
What do you love about being a jewellery designer?
It is a form of meditation. It allows me to sculpt a vision into a metal or leather object, an alchemy of a revelation. A dream come true.
Where do you look for creative inspiration?
The sky is the limit! Everywhere I look, in the city landscape, colours, from watching movies, especially the classics and horror. Music is also an infinite source, everything from rap, electronic music, techno, and pop. Books with esoteric narrative, the history of a garment, where and why something has been created in that particular realm.
Who is your style icon and why?
It’s tricky to pinpoint one. I would say Isabella Blow and Michelle Lamy. Isabella Blow because of her eclectic taste and superb elegance. Michelle Lamy because of her tribal influences. She has such a strong personality. I would love to meet her one day!
