Berlin Magazine Goes Full Kardashian

Another set of sultry photos by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

It will rank as one of the oddest print-publication juxtapositions of 2016. From Berlin this week, fashion and art magazine 032c has teased a 22-page spread titled “Calabasas.” And via Westwood, Calif., the media continues to report about the hospitalization of Kanye West, the man who conceptualized the storyline for “Calabasas,” which features photos shot by the famed duo Mert & Marcus (Mert Alan, Marcus Piggott).

The 032c Winter Issue is going to make major headlines for a second reason. For one of the three issue covers, Khloé Kardashian Amina Blue posed while fully nude, exposing her right breast and posterior. From the beginning of the 032c feature:

Calabasas is the Bethlehem of reality television and the location of Kanye West’s Yeezy studio, an industrial space with Intel as its neighbor. The studio is a testing site for a new type of uniform, a search for the base unit of clothing. In 2016, he and Kim Kardashian West broke ground on a new Calabasas home by Axel Vervoordt that remains under construction. There, they were joined by Travis Scott, Khloé Kardashian, Amina Blue, Young Lord, Hafiia Mira and Grace Bol to model the Yeezy Season 3 collection.

032c has tipped a small portion of the “Calabasas” feature online, including the Khloé Blue cover. The image can also be viewed in the online store. In continental Europe, such an image is standard fare, celebrating the beauty of the female form. In puritanical America, not so much.

032c, named after the Pantone Matching System identifier for a shade of bold red, is published twice a year. The 2016 Winter edition is Issue #31.
