Riposte – Issue 11
Riposte is a smart magazine for women.
Each issue features five ideas, four meetings, three features, two essays and one icon.
It profiles bold and fascinating women whose achievements speak for themselves. The interviews are honest rather than being full of media trained responses as the women we feature candidly discuss their successes & failures, their work, their passions and perspectives.
Essays and features cover a broader range of issues than the regular fashion or celebrity focus of women’s magazines–these include art, design, music, business, innovation, politics, food and travel.
Issue #11 launches with an obscene amount of good stuff for you to feast your eyes on.
In our interview section you’ll meet…food designer Laila Gohar, legendary musician Calypso Rose, CEO of the Serpentine Galleries Yana Peel, music executive Grace Ladoja, former convicted anarchist Yukiko Ekida.
