Based in Bergamo, a beautiful city just outside of Milan, Italy Nicole is a young mum of two and the owner of five eyewear stores, where she works alongside her husband.

Taking business calls from home, she switches on by slipping on a smart dress, a simple gesture that adjusts her posture and re-focuses her attention to something new. And just as easily she down-shifts into casual wear with subtle details, for a moment of ease, with her beloved dog in her garden.
