About a year ago I had the good fortune to connect with Nicole Alfieri, the inspired and talented designer behind Pico Vela – a design company producing American-made, hand-loomed knit-wear in rich colors and ingenious designs. Her sweaters are truly swoon-worthy on so many levels – the feel of the finely knit fabric in your fingers, the blend of colors interacting in the light, the drape of a top over shoulder, back, hip. I am in love with her beautiful work — so photographing these pieces of clothing art is an absolute pleasure.
I’ve photographed three seasons of designs for her now and look forward to many more. I hope you’ll look closer at her website and like Pico Vela on Facebook so you can take advantage of her seasonal pop-up stores and shows. Don’t miss a chance to lay eyes on these in person, but until then, let these gorgeous photos to tantalize your senses!
