" I have a mixed reaction to Kaffe Fassett's designs. While I appreciate the beauty of the patterns and the knitting, I don't always like the styling, and this is true of the Cubist vest. It's a beautiful piece of work, but it feels or looks utilitarian when I put it on. Hard to describe, but it feels just a little dowdy, when it should be exciting or colorful or something. For me, the colors are dark..sad....for someone else, they will certainly be complimentary. The shape of the vest is straightforward, looks better open than closed because it's pretty waistless. I don't know how to describe the effect better, but I have a PC vest from 15 years ago that I like so much better. It has magnificent style --and is like a carpet. It is long, has slits on the sides, wonderful heft. The cubist vest will keep you warm. It didn't win me over. "
