It’s time to explore the notion of creative leadership. 032c commissioned K-HOLE—a maverick crew of artists disguising themselves as a trend consultancy—to shine a light on recent developments in business that will undoubtedly cross into all industries. Edited and designed in New York, the dossier includes an essay and interviews with Floriane de Saint Pierre, Venkatesh Rao, Eric Wahlforss, and Gildo Zegna.
“It would be wrong to reduce HOOD BY AIR to an oversize T-shirt,” explains Vogue editor Mark Holgate about the NYC-based label run by designer Shayne Oliver. “It is the expression of a generation that sees fashion as part of a broader creative endeavour—whether it’s clothes, a club night, music, photography, whatever. HBA comes fully formed in a way that suggests a new model.” In 032c’s interview with Oliver, Emily Segal discovers what makes HBA a truly contemporary luxury brand—one that insists on the sincerity of fashion itself.
