The 032c Apparel “LoveSexDreams" Collection
This is a reclamation of minimalism. We’re bringing it down from the heights of modernism and spiking it, spliffing it, taking it out of class and redefining it for its natural habitat: brutal reality. Truant minimalism is not slick, scholarly, linear, or monochrome, but direct, exposed, unpredictable, unprocessed. It exists outside of narrative continuity, graphic purity, and anything institutional, and we like it that way because that’s where potential and promise live, too. Truant minimalism can get weird and abrasive, and yes, it’s probably flirting with you. It's better unplanned and best if you get caught. Why drop out when you can ditch?
The 032c Apparel “LoveSexDreams” collection belongs to 1990s West Coast sprawl and West Berlin's Love Sex Dreams. It's part jock, stoner, sleaze, hacker, tech bro, country club, strip club, dog-punk; it's in a clique, it’s a loner, it’s psychic. It's your everyday sampling of acid washes, waxed fabrics, silk-lined terry cloth, Intarsia knits, embroidery, neoprene, leather, varsity letters, oversized t-shirts, heavyweight workwear blends, denim, thermal waffles, and bouclé. Around truant minimalism, stuff just gets lost, found, and “borrowed” – messed up or exchanged in the spaces between “yours” and “mine,” “out” and “in.” Love, dream, but don't get attached, because nothing is a given and everything is up for grabs.
The “IDEAL” Coach Jacket features a classic coach jacket silhouette made slick (and a bit sleaze) with a high-gloss beige patent polyurethane shell that should keep PETA away, but is easy-to-clean if not. The body is lined in 100% cotton and the sleeves in 100% polyester. Embroidered patches on the back spell out “IDEAL” — a word that appears, in Gothic glory, on a 1915 “machine portrait” by Francis Picabia (and/or a description of the wearer, depending on your preference). With a drawstring waist, it’s guaranteed to protect you from “elements” of all sorts.
