We had special feelings—longing, want! want! want!—when we saw this hand-knit cardigan come down Rodarte's fall '08 catwalk, a spectacularly delicate web of fuchsia, black, white and a palette of defiant blues. We saw it in person at Presse Boutique, and wanted it more. There it was, a folded dream on a curated table, but, of course, we knew what would follow when found it: the price tag. And so the love affair continues, as $2,760 is too high a price for our affections, but there are others with deeper, flusher hearts, we're sure. [RackedWire]
