OUR NIGHT IN PARIS: 032c and BLOOD ORANGE at Silencio

Last week 032c headed to Paris for a showroom presentation of our COSMIC WORKSHOP apparel and women’s ready-to-wear collections at David Lynch’s Silencio club. To wrap  up men’s fashion week in the French capital, we threw a party celebrating our forthcoming line, co-hosted by adidas. The crowd saw an intimate performance by musicians Ian Isiah and Devonté Hynes, aka BLOOD ORANGE, who gifted attendees custom embroidered hats – as teaser from his upcoming collaboration with 032c. Guests – including Kate Moss, Stefano Pilati, Daphne Guinness, Stella Schnabel, Michel Gaubert, Teddy Quinlivan, Soo Joo Park, and pretty much every male model who walked in Paris last week – partied until morning to sets from DJs J Rick, Pandora’s Juke Box, Lawrence Lee, and Honey Dijon. Photographers Saskia Lawaks and Lukas Gansterer documented the scene – see the images (and video) below. A huge THANK YOU to Reference Studios for managing the night.

It's not unusual for brands to mine the counterculture seeking inspiration, but the parallels between early 90s rave and the present are not purely aesthetic, but political too.More
