As soon as I received my first pay-check, I headed over to Nicola Finetti’s QV boutique in Melbourne. I was working at Miss Sixty selling denim, but my heart longed for silk, organza and elegance. A veteran in the Australian fashion industry, Nicola Finetti started his label over a decade ago. I’ve been a fan since I was a teen. Recently I had the opportunity to interview the designer to ask about his covetable label, his background in architecture and his favourite hobbies.
Nicola Finetti admits that he is a very driven, innovative and creative person. Having studied architecture, he is well-read in the art field. His SS13/14 collection is inspired by op-art artist Victor Vasarely, who is renowned for his incredible colourful optical illusions in the 60s. The collection boasts structured tailoring and contemporary cuts in clashing geometric prints. I’m sporting a neutral version in the post, but you can check out the full range [HERE]. Nicola loves to travel and immerse himself in the culture of each city he ventures to. He has lived in 3 continents (Europe, South America and Australia), each over a decade long. He counts movies, icons, nature, cities and street style as his top inspirations for each of his collections. One thing he said to me which I will never forget is: Fashion is like your home, it represents who you are on the inside.
Well, now you know what I’ll be doing this weekend! Sprucing up my home!
