The Art of Style: Maria Pinto of M2057
Thirteen-year-old Maria Pinto was skimming the pages of WWD when she decided designing had to be a part of her life. Inspired by urban architecture, Mariaâ€™s new line M2057 features elements of raw hems, angular lines, and draping that evoke glass and steel skyscrapers. Her pieces were designed with an artful approach to seamless transitioning, allowing garments to transform from casual to formal with ease. The theme behind M2057â€²s Fall collection is â€œTwisted Architectureâ€ exploring a bridge between the linear and the fluid to create movement. We also asked Maria about Fallâ€™s must-haves, â€œEvery fall wardrobe needs a killer pair of boots, chunky cashmere sweaters, long dresses and skirts, and anything in leather!â€ We couldnâ€™t agree more.
