Level Press: Why do you do what you do?
Nick Lenzini: cause i get a lot of joy from doing what i like to do
LP: Tell me where ideas come from.
NL: depends on what I’m working on. when I’m designing for holiday i get a lot of ideas from old stuff and past collections also from books and just my own thoughts. if I’m working for someone else or I’m styling a video the ideas come from conversation or movies. i love movies a lot
LP: What’s your favorite color combo?
NL: neon and black
NL: dont really have any
LP: What’s your favorite place on the internet?
NL: hmmm, i love youtube a lot, i watch a lot of interviews and old skate videos.
LP: What materials do you work with?
NL: i don’t know, i just work with whatever i can.
LP: Where do you hang out in Los Angeles?
NL: lol my house in van nuys, i don’t leave.
LP: What’s a mistake you’ve made?
NL: i think ive made too many to list also dont want to give my mistakes too much credit
LP: Where are you from and what did you take from there?
NL: saint louis, and guess bringing clothing to areas where the clothing is desolate. in saint louis there weren’t many options for clothes and weren’t many cool brands to buy so a lot of the power was in the internet. also this store called swedlife helped teach me a lot about clothes. i use to work for them, still great family though.
LP: Tell me about love?
LP: Where do you see yourself in 15 years?
NL: working on the best quality projects
LP: What’s your average work day like?
NL: its pretty hard to pick what average is, but ill try. as of late it has been this. wake up around 1-2 walk to starbucks, work on clothes and other projects till 8pm go on a run, come back to work on more clothes and styling till around 5-6am. then try and sleep for a little bit.
A huge thanks to Nick, and Holiday.
