Local Lady We Love, and Where to Find Her
This is Nicki Cozzolino, our inaugural Local Lady We Love. She's a designer with her own ready-to-wear line of clothing that she personally lives in and that make other women look amazing called NICOLINO. She's a heavenly mix of Italian and Dutch, and she loves all things tennis, including Pro Kadima, which you may know as "those paddles on the beach".
Additionally, she's single (winky face), and when she's not crushing the studio working on her new Spring line, you can find her hitting the rosé and seafood at Blue Water Grill, cooling down with a li'l gelato at Eataly, or getting French in her 'hood at her new favorite spot Lafayette.
