After revealing the cover of its Fall/Winter 2017 issue, “Berlin Kidz,” 032c goes in depth with Frank Ocean‘s Boys Don’t Cry. Accompanying the text is an editorial that stars Ocean; the singer models new goods from the likes of COMME des GARÇONS HOMME Plus and Gallery 909.

Shot in and around a quiet residential area, Ocean showcases shiny shorts from COMME des GARÇONS and Gallery 909’s “Crescent Moon” T-shirt, along with understated white T-shirts and jewelry. Meanwhile, writer Alex Needham goes in-depth with Boys Don’t Cry, discussing Ocean’s production, lyrics, performance and intent. In doing so, Needham explores Blonde, the nostalgia, ULTRA mixtape, Ocean’s music videos, and the artist’s Tumblr page. At the core of the discussion is Ocean’s reluctance to appear publicly and how that inherent shyness conflates and coalesces with his musical output.

Check out the feature over on 032c’s website. Recently, Tyler, the Creator offered his own take on COMME des GARÇONS HOMME Plus Spring/Summer 2018 for GRIND.
