Nothing is ever what it seems with 032c, and its Spring/Summer 2021 ready-to-wear collection “SYSTÈME DE LA MODE” proves exactly that. Centered around fabrics created by Ferdinand Schmidt-Thomé of Berlin’s Chromic Lab, the SS21 offering comprises outerwear, sweatshirts and pants, shorts, shirts, T-shirts and a range of accessories that tap into the publication-cum-fashion brand’s underground Berlin sensibilities, and altogether the pieces are designed to work in any condition imaginable. 

With this in mind, 032c has put adaptability and environmental awareness at the forefront of the collection. By using elevated fabrication techniques and combining this with the latest sustainable materials and practices, the label offers pieces such as the black nylon parka that’s made using a water-repellant semi-reflective Olmetex “Tecno” finish, which will allow the coat to change its appearance in different weather conditions.

This concept appears throughout “SYSTÈME DE LA MODE,” with some items featuring a heat-sensitive color-changing application, while others such as the “Matrix” knit feature reflective branding all over it. Essentially, 032c is channeling how people change depending on their surroundings through its SS21 collection. “This collection responds to what is happening in the world, personally and globally,” says 032c ready-to-wear Creative Director Maria Koch. “But it also has a vision beyond reality, of something more magical — it’s about realizing potential, immediately.”

Rounding out the collection is a range of accessories, most of which are made from supple calf leather. A heat-sensitive extra-large shopper is one standout, while pieces such as its belt, keychain, and even the ultralight black “wet look” nylon shorts tap into the Berlin underground leather-fetish scene that 032c so evidently represents throughout its work.

All in all, “SYSTÈME DE LA MODE” transcends à la mode — it’s not up to date, it’s presenting the future of 032c, and subsequently, the world. Check out the Max von Gumppenberg-shot lookbook above, and purchase everything now on 032c’s website
