Interpretations Vol. 6 is another magical and heartfelt collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki. Like each Volume before, the 6th Volume includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.
This year the photo shoot was set in charming Barcelona and we had the honor to have Jonna Hietala taking all the pictures for this book.

Whenever I look at these socks I feel like they are lit by the moonlight beaming through the clouds, fading every detail but also letting me see what’s important. I live in a city where moonlight can’t be appreciated, so I am mesmerized every time I can escape to a quiet place and can observe the mystery and romance present in a nightscape.
These socks are worked from the top down in the round with a heel flap and gusset using 5 colors and striping them together to achieve this faded effect.
