Inspired Style (At
from Maria Pinto
text & photography by
Chicago-based fashion designer and artist, Maria Pinto, has famously dressed some of the world’s style icons, including Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Brooke Shields. Maria’s latest collection, m2057, is inspired by urban architecture and design, merging a clean, minimal aesthetic with functionality and versatility.
Pieces from m2057 were recently featured on the hit show Empire, and to celebrate Chicago’s Architectural Biennial, Maria released a limited edition collection this past September inspired by the work of architect Jeanne Gang and photographed by renowned photographer Sandro Miller.
For the last five years, Maria has called a gorgeous converted loft space in Chicago’s River North neighborhood home. Maria’s loft, filled with personal treasures and one-of-a-kind pieces (including her own artwork), is an inspiring mix of beauty, serenity, and great design.
