“I presented my ‘blue calm’ collection of Western-style clothing last April. It was inspired by the film ‘Paterson’, which has a day-to-day focus – unfolding from Monday to Sunday. Each day [in the film] begins with scenes of the characters waking up in bed. I created a lot of long-length items, [including] blouses with oversized silhouettes, as an affirmation of a relaxed lifestyle and laid-back time spent indoors.”

“For my most recent collection, ‘Nashi no Kajitsu o Onna no Ko ni’ (‘Pears to Girls’), I wanted to represent a steady, quiet life through clothing. I was inspired by the documentary ‘Life Is Fruity’, which follows the cultivation, preparation, and cooking of fruits and vegetables grown in [an elderly Japanese couple’s] garden. I wanted people to think of creating their outfits as if they were cooking, with each item of clothing serving as an ingredient.”

Ritsuko Karita (@ritsuko627) believes in the magic of fashion. “I’m not self-confident by nature,” she explains, “[but] when I come across clothing that makes me feel cute or cool or pretty, I feel reborn.” The Tokyo-based designer started her brand four years ago, as a 20-year-old student. “I named my brand 〜rinrinka〜 and took this opportunity to sell hair ornaments and backpacks.” Accessories now form part of her collections, which focus on “creating visual art with the female form”. But the transformative nature of fashion remains important to her: “Fashion has that sort of energy – it has allowed me to become something other than myself.”

At the moment, Natalie (@nataliejhane) is drawn to life under the sea. “I love watching old synchronized swimming videos and seeing how the women looked underwater,” says the artist. “I tried swimming today, and I’ll probably keep doing it because it’s like a dream world when you’re underwater.”
⠀
She’s also taking her work from 2D to 3D. “I haven’t done a sculpture before and these pieces are a lot bigger than what I’m used to, so that’s where all my attention is,” she shares.

“Finding space to create has been challenging for me lately. It’s hard to find enough room because my work started out quite small, but now it’s getting larger and sculptural. It seems like Los Angeles is becoming more popular for artists – almost all the artists I knew when I lived in New York have moved to LA. There are so many new art galleries popping up and it seems like there’s a true celebration of art.”

“Politics is [increasingly] taking center stage in my practice. I’m passionate about change and learning as much as I can, but I also think it’s important to pull back from that a little bit. With everything going on here [in the United States], it can make you physically sick.”

“Intimacy is so much more than just the physical aspect. It’s honesty and letting yourself be vulnerable and really allowing your true self to be seen. If there was more love and acceptance attached to the idea of sex [in the United States], it wouldn't be as taboo, because our bodies should be celebrated and pleasure should be celebrated.”

“I have a background in vintage lingerie and I have a large collection of pieces from the 1800s to the 1960s. About seven years ago I was like, ‘I’m gonna start my own lingerie line.’ I started drawing it out, but then figures started to emerge from the drawings, and it shifted from wanting to have a lingerie company into expressing myself through drawings.”

Sex is complicated, and Natalie Krim (@nataliejhane) knows it. “One would be misguided to see my work and think, ‘Oh she must know a lot about sex…’,” she says. “It’s a subject I’ve dedicated myself to learning about but it’s hard to explain – it can be the most beautiful and the most hurtful thing in the world.”
⠀
Featured as one of @voguemagazine’s #vogueworld 100, a power list of creative voices, the Los Angeles-based artist describes her work as “under the umbrella of erotic art”. Although Natalie’s work is frequently influenced by her personal relationships, recently it has taken on more activist undertones. “I would say that it’s feminist because I wouldn’t be able to do my work if it wasn’t for feminist artists before me.”

A rock enthusiast through and through, Alison (@alisonjeancole) also leads expeditions. “The ones I do in Oregon are only for women or anyone women-identifying,” she says. Not all of them are rock-focused. “My friend Charlie and I lead a tour each November called Notable Holes of the American West,” she shares. “We drive around mostly rural and remote Nevada and look for holes in the ground – it could be a mine, a cave, a missing place, or even a missing history.”
⠀
This summer, Alison plans to experiment with large-scale stone sculpting at her home in the Mojave Desert in Southern California. “It’s totally remote and I like the idea of being that far away,” she says. “I don’t think my girlfriend and I will ever live on the property, but the goal is to use it as a sculpture garden and build a camping situation out there.”

“One thing I love about being in this rock club is that I'm exposed to different ideas that I passionately disagree with, but we all get together despite our differences because we love something. It's beautiful but it's challenging.”

“I definitely have an obsession with the desert that I don't share with the ocean or the forest. I love the ocean and the forest, but I feel like a stranger in those environments.
⠀
“When I'm out in the desert I feel very much I'm where I'm supposed to be. It's those moments right when the sun is rising and right when it’s setting, and the Mojave just turns this tender purple color and it's just like... There's no better feeling in the world.”
