Interpretations Vol. 2 is the second design collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki; a magical collection featuring 12 patterns.

Float is an easy sweater, pure in its simplicity but highly wearable and fun with the rhythmic stripes. Worked seamlessly from top down with a round yoke; this piece is a true classic. Choose your colors carefully and see where the stripes lead you.
