PHOTO DIARY: Marc Goehring Went to SAINT LAURENT’s Spring 2019 Menswear Show and it was Major

Last week, 032c Fashion Director Marc Goehring left our Berlin HQ for New York City’s South City Seaport, where Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello unveiled his first fully-fledged menswear collection for the label. Here’s what happened, in pictures. (Warning: NSFW.)

It is early. So early that when you arrive at the airport the staff haven’t even arrived yet. They’re taking no chances. There’s no way I am missing this flight . . .

Ready for takeoff: schmood.

Finally boarding, but there’s always time for a bathroom selfie – because, FASHION.

Look, a bespoke edition of The New York Times. “Gay in India,” “Celebrities confuse pop and politics”… they know me :)

Delta Airlines is LIT. Please also note my primo product placement skills – always on brand.

store.032c.com, ysl.com

So psyched for NYC.

After three attempts at the picture, I’m allowed in.

Sassiest airport pick-up ever.

Candle, lighter, chocolates, roses, an iPad case, and a booklet with my schedule. Saint Laurent x New York Edition Hotel = Major.

I mean . . . views.

I may have extreme jetlag, but Anthony, merci. *Lights welcome card on fire and reads candle.*

Second best branded lighter I ever smoked with.

When fashion month kicks in. Bleeding gums! Great start.

Literally everybody is here. Helmut Lang digital editor Ava Nirui is catching up with 032c Issue 34: The Big Flat Now.

Everyone is saying the best party tonight will be Beige. I don’t know what this means but I am, naturally, interested.

Turns out it’s a one-night reboot of Erich Conrad´s *legendary* NYC Tuesday night party, Beige. #RIPBeige #LongLiveBeige

#BeigeEstMort #ViveLeBeige

One second it’s “I love your European accent,” and the next, this. Time for bed.

Good Afternoon, it’s your old friend, jetlag! But still, views.

How much sleep do humans need anyway? Two hours? Looking forward to the Saint Yanny show later.

Better than Bode-Museum! (And conveniently, it’s next to the hotel. Shout out to Saint Laurent, they also know me.) What follows is a short excursion through the museum of sex. Animal edition.

Meow.

Even the pu**y is tired of the pu**y.

Fashion!

I mean . . . “Panda porn”? I think I downloaded the wrong movie.

A little shopping before YSL. Some kind of vending machine. Help.

Signed printouts from Scott Schuman, Sartorialist and total pro.

Speaking of professionalism. Buongiorno. SL killing it again. Thanks for the glasses.

Have to get dressed now. It’s ok nobody sent me today’s schedule.

Fuck. Turns out fashion shows involve more than sitting and Instagramming . . .

Scenes. SL totally blocking Madison Avenue. Just for me? Thanks guys!

Everyone wanted a photo with this parking meter. I don’t know why.

Everyone.

On my way!

Don’t forget to hydrate, kids. Like me.

Why put up a poster when you can put up a fucking mural? So extra. So NYC.

Planes, trains, and shuttles.

Jurassic Park has NOTHING on Saint Laurent. All other fashion shows are cancelled.

Exclusive sightseeing tour. Skyline. Liberty Statue. Beautiful peoples. Viewz.

That. Set.

So hot.

Fashion class of 2018 makes their way to school.

I found him. Mel Ottenberg <3 #scarftwins #saintlaurent

This one speaks for itself. Can we take a minute to appreciate my personal marble bathroom fantasy. They did everything.

SL pashmina.

Now I understand why we needed a boat. Nighttime viewz. High five Anthony Vaccarello.

SL’s new muse: Lennon Gallagher. You can watch the full show online. Didn’t need to leave Berlin!

Atmos.

Haven’t I seen this in another city? Is it a flat pack? IKEA x SL present Schmågnœr for all your Scandinavian heavy metal needs.

Hmm, decisions. Also, Warhol vs. Basquiat much?

Pull up to the schiff like.

My Great Gatsby moment from the stairwell. Caviar and champagne. I’ve arrived.

Admiring this purple tip. Time for bed.

Feeling breezy. Ready to re-see.

Styled by Marc Goehring.

Post-Saint Laurent schmood: totally zen. Eyes closed. Surrounded by flowers. Ready to return to Berlin.

  • FRANK OCEAN: The Artist is Absent

    Last month Frank Ocean's album Blonde was certified platinum, breaking one million units sold in an age when nobody seems to be paying for music. But the psychedelic future soul of Frank Ocean has always been about meaning, not numbers. For our Winter 2017/18 issue, music journalist Alex Needham got to the heart of Blonde in "The Artist is Absent," a feature accompanied by a photo editorial shot by Petra Collins and styled by Mel Ottenberg. "Once you let it in," Needham writes, "Ocean's thoughts and emotions are transmitted to you on such an intimate level, they seem to suffuse your central nervous system."More
  • Beatriz Colomina on “Portable Utopias” at Eurozine:

    “Struggle in the street was combined with otherworldly utopias in the low budget, small circulation architectural magazines of the 1960s and 1970s. Free of the constraints of finance and convention, the genre served as an international platform for experimental design and discourse and was instrumental in the progress of architectural modernity.”

  • “Artists, of course, have always liked to think of themselves as rebels but, the truth is, as long as art remains a prestige economy of the free market — a glitzy barnacle on the side of global finance — it cannot be an effective tool for political change. The best it can hope to do is comment on the political situation after the fact, ‘thematize’ it as it unfolds, or in rare, purely serendipitous cases, anticipate it.”

  • Surprisingly slick art direction from the chaotic world of hardcore punk

    Deliberate art direction may seem out of scope for a scene known for crude songwriting and in-your-face lyrics, but the most impactful bands of the hardcore spectrum have often been those who opt for a considered design direction to accompany their impulsive music. And in a world that rewards a “no fucks given” attitude, a punk band having a glossy art direction is pretty damn punk.More
