From the designer: ” Diego is inspired by photos of one of my favorite actors, Diego Luna, blessing us with his perfect smile while relaxing in a cozy cabled pullover. Though the basic cables are similar, once it was on the needles, this sweater became something else entirely—a cardigan, most obviously, with saddle shoulders, ¾ length sleeves, moderate waist shaping, and a traveling motif on the back that makes it stand out from traditional Aran sweaters. “
