Vincent Martinelli, visual director for the jewelry and home furnishings store Love Adorned, has a knack for accessories. “I end up looking like an old Japanese woman,” he says. Marianna, community director at the Wing, a women-only coworking space and club, loves simple and black: “Anything Everlane.” Both love cooking and painting (for her, birds and still lifes; for him, outer space). Some things are traditional. “I got down on both knees,” Vincent says. In September, the pair tied the knot.
Marianna on Vincent’s style: “I’d call it Earth Mother.”
Vincent on Marianna’s style: “She’s like if Annie Hall were from Berlin. A little sharper, faster, sleeker.”
Vincent’s favorite outfit of Marianna’s: “She has this Isabel Marant bouclé hoodie. I wish she wore it all the time — I might be jealous of it.”
Marianna’s favorite outfit of Vincent’s: “He has a couple of short-sleeved tees in indigo. His tattoos are nice to look at.”
One piece you share: Marianna: “He’s got a collection of bandannas that he taught me how to wear.” Vincent: “Tied around the side, knotted in front, peeking out of a pocket.”

“Tom, who now lives in the Bronx, was raised on a plantation in the Delta. Emmett Till was one of his best friends. Indeed, he was with Till until about 7 p.m. on the horrible, legendary 1955 night when Till was murdered allegedly for whistling at a white woman.”
"While it's tempting to celebrate exuberantly the demise of yuppie culture and all the other horrendous phenomena of the Reagan/Thatcher/Koch era, capitalism is not notable for its equitable division of pain"
