Joerg Koch founded 032c magazine in Berlin in 2001 with the goal of focusing on contemporary culture and fashion for a sophisticated audience. The publication has featured detailed dossiers on fashion legends such as Helmut Lang, Comme des Garçons, and Raf Simons. In 2015, the magazine launched a clothing line called 032c Apparel to an immediate, raving success. The line is creative directed by Joerg’s wife Maria Koch who used to work as a womenswear designer for Jil Sander, Prada, and is currently a consultant for Yeezy.
The line is informed by the content in the magazine, and the 032c office works like a research studio, with a constant exchange of ideas between the fashion line and the magazine. The collection features easy to wear basics with a street style edge.
