Maripol was one of the driving forces behind the 1980s New York art scene. Her intuitive eye quickly became synonymous with the sensuality that the era embodied. Her numerous collaborations with artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Deborah Harry, Grace Jones bred tales that rapidly grew into urban legends. Armed solely with her faithful Polaroid camera, Maripol captures instantaneity and spontaneity. However, there is always a haze of nostalgia that passes over the lens because although the camera prints out the photo just seconds after the shutter has clicked, the captured moment has passed. Her photos memorialize the moment on paper but they are rooted in memory. Maripol made her debut as a musician in 2016 with the launch of her first. It is a natural celebration of the effervescence of the night and the mysteries of love. The Maripol collection for Each x Other takes the age-old mantra “love each other” as its main inspiration. These words are written on t-shirts and bejeweled on sweater fronts. They act as a constant reminder of the transcendent power of love. The black and vibrant reds of the jeans, jackets and coats of the collection fit with Maripol’s signature palette, as well as reveal a fondness for the envelop-ing sensuality of the night - another of Maripol’s key muses. The image of the heartbeat is a recurrent theme that graces both sweatshirts and dresses. This physical manifestation of experience and sensation is as visually striking as it is thought provoking. As soon as we see the line of the cardiogram rise and fall we cannot help but imagine the accompanying audio, and how it changes in response to our deepest emotions.
