At the turn of the year, German publishing powerhouse Joerg Koch took over the reins as editor-in-chief of Montreal’s SSENSE in a move that united the e-commerce luxury giant with Koch’s eye for editorial. The founder of Berlin’s 032c magazine had already turned his DIY project into one of the world’s most respected fashion and lifestyle titles and his experience was tailor-made to propel the content-commerce engine at SSENSE. What’s followed has been a series of striking features, thought pieces and editorial shoots that feel an intrinsic part of the SSENSE experience rather than tacked on. And at the same time he’s retained his role at 032c which – beyond its cutting edge copy has also put out several collections of hoodies and caps while its workshop was one of the few retail spaces to offer The Life of Pablo merchandise.
