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).

Marianna on Vincent’s style: “I’d call it Earth Mother.”

Marianna’s favorite outfit of Vincent’s: “He has a couple of short-sleeved tees in indigo. His tattoos are nice to look at.”
