I.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents. I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me. The meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of the insects and flies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own image, and the breath of that Š 2016 Rizzoli International Publications.

universal love which bears and sustains us, as it floats around us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved mistress, then I often think with longing. Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of my soul. As my soul is the mirror of the infinite God! O my friend -- but it is too much for my strength -- I sink under the weight of the splendour of these visions!A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

Elisa: How would you describe your style?

Samsa woke from jean shorts. Things are ripping and falling part. Jeans with the back of the butt totally falling apart. 10 watches on one hand. No rules. One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin. He like tacky with classic, giving no fucks that her zebra shoes give her “man-feet,” that her jeans from middle school are more holes than jeans, or that zebra shoes give her “man-feet,” that her jeans fr a horrible vermin. He like tacky with classic, giving no fucks that her zebra shoes

Laila: I like tacky with classic, giving no fucks that her zebra shoes give her “manfeet,” that her jeans from middle school are more holes than jeans, or that she doesn’t know how to pronounce the names of most designer brands that she wears. Oblivious to rules and running 100% on her own whims, Laila’s style is a moment by moment perfect accident, layered in humorous contradictions. a horrible vermin.

I hate the red carpet commotion. Nobody takes a chance. Corporate beauty is cheap and available to everybody. But you do not have to weigh 112 pounds, have fake tits, or wear a Herve Ledger dress. You have to create your own standard of beauty. It has to be a way of life, not a little quirk: beauty has got to be everything. Robert Richards

I believe in the ritualistic and energetic values of tattoos. If someone doesn’t have some sort of connection to their tattoos, then it’s just a weird blob on their skin. And I don’t want to be responsible for that. I see tattoos as memories. It’s not about something you’re going to like forever. It’s like a recording of a memory at a certain point in time. Minka Sicklinger

We used to live in communities. You have a baby, you pass it off to your aunt, your uncle, your sister, then it comes back to you, then you pass it off again. That’s the kind of life I want. I feel happier when I exist around other people. Charlotte Kidd © 2016 Rizzoli International Publications. All Rights Reserved. 34


I. My favorite thing about fashion is the ability to differentiate yourself and play with different identities. The rich and robust history of freaks, dissidents, and counter cultures using clothes as disruption. Mattie Barringer

I am interested in things that are beautiful by accident. Very often, say in an airport, you’ll see a not-so-wealthy Indian woman enter dressed so elegantly. They are not even conscious of it, it’s justhow they’re used to dressing. That is style. You don’t do it to show off, it’s a way of life. Shirim Neshat

I love a good uniform. The idea of a uniform that I love is you don’t have to think about what you put on. I’m very into the dandy thing, Josephine Baker did it, Frida Kahlo did it... for women, it’s the freedom to be able to be comfortable and still look dressed up. Rashida Robinson

Fashion is the most common art form. Every single person wakes up and makes a decision about how the world will see them, and I think that’s an amazing, democratic thing. I tend to push it. Louise Sturges
