It's First Time Week on BTR, and we're celebrating it in style with Sew & Tell's first ever knitwear designer! Carlo Volpi is an award-winning, up-and-coming young knitter whose first collection for men, titled "Lipstick Stab Wounds," is colorful, challenging, and playfully & masterfully executed. Combining pop art references with sports and comic heros, Carlo's designs recall both sculpture and graffiti, introducing punk to its newest platform: the sweater. On today's show, Carlo will talk about how he started knitting, what inspires him to create his unique designs, the genius of Missoni, and some of his upcoming projects. Plus, a subtly holiday-ish themed playlist, with tracks from Sleigh Bells, Wise Blood, Mimicking Birds, Purse Snatchers, and a brand new, beautiful, heartbreaking Christmas song from Damien Jurado. So turn up the volume, pour yourself some egg nog, and join me for a conversation with Sew & Tell's first knitwear guest!
