Boot-scootin’ cowboy boot brand turned club stomping staple, Buffalo London, collaborated with 032c – the Berlin-based mag and brand that needs little introduction. Together, the Germanic duo launched 032c apparel’s first women’s shoe collection, helmed by creative director, Maria Koch. The collection combines Buffalo’s cult platform sneaker soles — aka the cloud — made popular by 90s-2K clurb culture, with 032c’s Berlinified lux look. The result: riding-inspired jodhpur ankle boots with signature 032c-red detailing on black leather, and hot thigh-highs reinterpreting fetish/ravewear.
032c described the collab as, “Streetwear on steroids meets old world craftsmanship… because more is more, contradiction is beautiful, and we didn’t grow up to leave our youth behind.” 100%%%. Maria’s goal was to celebrate the “tension and potential” of combining womenswear with the iconic qualities of clubwear.
Also, a mental note that bad-ass Buffalo binches include, but are not limited to: the Spice Girls, Cher, Madonna, NSYNC and Cameron Diaz. So, follow your queens and get ready2rave.
