(Yes, this is the DK V-neck Boxy you’ve been asking for!)

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.

For me, the greatest beauty in a garment is versatility, wearability.
I just love making noble pieces that don’t need anything special to become favorite. They silently wait next to all their beautifully embellished friends, knowing that I will come to pick them up again and again.
This understated and simple boxy design is one of those garments. Neutral in every way. Silent of all details.
