Slick Summer was inspired by the Italian ristorante that is like home to the owners and patrons, maps of their lives, places with people and occasions to remember.
Restaurants that picked up where they left off when Italians immigrated to America. Places I’d walk into with my Nonna that were dark at all hours of the day, where lasagna had no schedule and everyone had a nickname.
I love the smells of these places, the bustle of relatives, recipes, the legacy, a place to see and be seen. So in true “bella figura” flashy flair, I’m so excited to be giving you the Slick Summer lookbook starring a whole bunch of late 90s edge that even your Nonna would approve of.
