We must learn to move without fear, to be aware of everything around us, to feel as well as mentally see our way into the future. - John A. Rice, Founder of Black Mountain College
Founded in 1933, Black Mountain College was political sanctuary and artistic incubator at once. Here, in the hills of North Carolina, Josef Albers taught photography on the campus’ cabbage patch and a soubresaut performed by Merce Cunningham demonstrated not just grace in movement but the clarity of physics as well. This was method, not content.
Inspired by Black Mountain College, the 032c What We Believe Collection is a sartorial companion in navigating the wax and wane of a multi-disciplinary lifestyle. In the spirit of perpetual self-vandalism, the 032c WWB Polo Shirt in black features a 3D embroidered logo “scratched” over the classic 032c logo on its heart. It also includes a gold 032c SOCIÉTÉ button, a pledge of allegiance in an age of endless choice.
