Based in New York City, creative Emilia Buccolo, ex co-founder of Smith&Smith, shares her day-to-day with us. She grabbed our attention mainly with her sincerity, vitality and quality of being simple. The lightness of her personal style is so genuine, that it can not be misinterpreted.

Description of personal style: Basic
Iconic garment or accessory: Rare Japanese fishing gear bracelet, it hasn’t come off in months, I feel it protects me.
Brands you support: Stella McCartney, Chloe (even back when both McCartney and Philo a team), Jacquemus (one of the few brands right now that I can connect to on a deeper level, simply because Simone is from my generation), Marni (because Lucinda Chambers is a B-O-S-S) .
On style: Style for me is the ART of being you! Being you, does not go out of trend and you cant buy it at a store. Style has nothing to do with fashion in some senses, its how much you dare to exude your inner grace.
Favorite spots: Stone Street (FiDi) in the spring, Pulqueria (Mexican speakeasy in Chintatown NY), Jeffrey’s Grocery, Hotel Americano.
