BTS -Behind the Scenes
One of the most interesting aspects of fashion is the meaning behind it. Fashion designers get their inspiration from pieces of art, movies, music, and architecture, just to name a few.

Nicholas Pini created the PINI label back in 2013. His inspiration at heart is to create and celebrate the new California girl. Lucky for me, I have not only seen his pieces in person but also worn them around the world: Providence, Puerto Rico & Milan, Italy. Almost all the pieces that I have worn now have their own space in my closet. Nick and I became friends instantly in 2012 when we met for the first time, only a few months before his first collection made its debut in Styleweek Northeast. Which by the way, is coming up in Providence on September 14 through the 18, and the tickets will be for sale tonight. Can't wait!

Pini's latest collection, Pure PINI, is based on neutral colors and consists of 10 full looks. If I were you, and trust me I would, visit his website around October if you're interested in purchasing some of his exclusives.
This photo shoot took place at some beautiful locations around Providence. Nick explains that "...this collection was inspired by driving down the freeway, skateboarding stars of the 70s, California & the textures found in a city by the sea."
If you are a PINI lover like I am, I would definitely keep my eye out for this seasons collection... I got a little inside scoop and trust me, the pieces will be totally affordable.
Until my next topic...
