Nogueira Sweater

Hello again!


Today I bring you the Nogueira Sweater, another design that is part of the Miss Babs 2020 Fall Collection. This sweater was inspired by a small neighborhood in the city of Petropolis, in the mountains of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The cooler temperatures and abundant nature of the place make this neighborhood a very popular weekend destination during Brazil’s fall and winter months. It is a beautiful place that I have had the pleasure to visit many times as I was growing up and holds a dear spot in my heart.
