I don't like the cover
It's awful imo.
A really bad bad cover
Strange but Interesting...
i really miss their 'anti-cover' covers....it was far more refreshing.
the mag itself however does seem rather interesting with the rick owens and the daniel sannwald features.
oh natasa will buy their mag again. last time it was really good. even some articles to read
Meh...not really much to say.
I knew nobody would like this...
I love it!
I'm glad it's not an in-your-face beauty shot (for that go shopping Numéro or similar)
I love Danko Steiner's photographic collages!
I like the monkeys and their 'word play'.
This is bad. And the image looks pretty much like the one with Raquel Zimmerman a few months ago in V.. which was suitable for V, not really for 023c.. then again, 032c seems to be 'evolving' in the same way Muse and A have, I flipped through their previous issue only weeks ago, I was actually going to grab it and pay for it the moment I saw it cause I figured it was unquestionably good but instead I decided just to take a quick look before purchase and I was surprised by how disappointing the content was, I never bought this magazine before but I remember seeing a lot of interesting content coming out of it and the last two issues have not produced anything close to that. I didn't buy it.. and judging by the content here (not to mention cover), I doubt this will change my mind.
Good for them trying to finally get more attention by taking this route, I just wonder if finding a good distributor wouldn't have been a better, less compromising idea..
i'e never got why that magazine kept on using that appalling background color. that puts me off enough to dissuade me from buying it.
anja looks mesmerizing and intense on that picture, but i'm seriously wondering whether the stylist was on strike when it was shot. and the two monkeys on the left-hand corner weren't necessary at all... or perhaps they are, just to fill the cover with 'something'... great lack of inspiration i guess?
overall that cover is, well, different and i don't utterly despise the experimental side of it, but with a fantastic model as anja, it could of been way better.
I think that is not awful. It is just different from that we always expect to be on the cover of fashion/art magazine (striking glamour, sexiness, etc.). It is okay and I am sure it looks better in print.
Yeah the first association that came to my mind upon seeing the cover, was Mario Sorrenti and Raquel with her propped up on a chair in the Prada dress.
I personally think she looks a little sick in the face, and I really dislike the Rodarte shoes with the dress, it's so basic but quite ugly .
hmm, not in my case. 032c didn't use to be about striking glamour or sexiness, which is what they're aiming for now with this cover (and then the previous one with Agyness). They were more conceptual and art-oriented (hence the design of their cover), less interested in following the steps of V or VP.
I mean the same thing. We observe that glamour/sexiness on V, W, Vogue covers. And 032c always tries to bring something different.
i agree with you mullet. it's very disappointing see how this publication has changed since even 2006 and before,when it had such tremendous depth....it was so unabashedly creative.....laden with so much thought,prose and intelligence. it's kind of what i've kept on repeat about purple and self service in a way,although with this one it was less image based and more about scratching beneath the surface of a particular subject.
i wish the same as you,that it had remained uncompromising but it seems like everything that we once held in such high esteem and would make you think and dream have pretty much sold out. the only one i see that still remains in tact is uscha pohl's very magazine. i mean even our beloved A went a bit commercial with the PS issue.
