Radical 1980s collective DIE TÖDLICHE DORIS made the Berlin punk scene look establishment and the avant-garde look straight-laced. Anti-institution, anti-norm, and anti-hierarchy, the West Berlin group is the provocation behind the 032c AW20/21 collection – and the 032c Workshop blueprint we never had growing up. Designed in collaboration with the group’s co-founder Wolfgang Müller, the garments feature imagery, lyrics, and leitmotifs from the Die Tödliche Doris archive, recombined and reproduced alongside new materials for a collection in the spirit of Berlin-Schöneberg, where the 032c headquarters sit just around the corner from Die Tödliche Doris Haus.
This plush cardigan is knit from a single gradient yarn, but the result looks like an interweaving of many. And speaking of synthesis, with a vertical stripe effect and red, black, and white colorway that mimics a glitching pixel, it’s a grandpa sweater for the digital age.
