Named after the sublime and radiant Maria Carlos Sotto Mayor, our beautiful Carlos is a variation of our Barbara dress - THE power dress par excellence... in a blouse version.
From Barbara, we find the straight cut, the cross stitching on the chest and, of course, the signature extra puff sleeves that give presence and confidence.
Carlos has been designed as a blouse to wear by itself. Fully lined on the body, it fits perfectly and needs nothing else to shine. We particularly like its back buttoning, with its exquisite big white buttons, and the tulip cutout of its bottom.
Good news! Carlos can be washed at home, either by hand or using your washing machine but with some caution due to the exceptional nature of its fabric. More specifically, wash it in a laundry bag at a maximum of 30°C, on a gentle cycle, with low spin speed. For drying: lay flat and air dry (absolutely no tumble drying!). For ironing, we recommend to use a steamer to avoid crushing the velvet fibers. Any doubt? Entrust your loved one to an ecological laundry or call us for further advice!
Over the year
When do I wear it?
Our beautiful Carlos will be particularly suited in the spring, autumn and winter. In the spring, it will accompany the arrival of sunny days with couture and mischief; in the cooler months, the softness and radiance of its cotton-velvet will brighten up and warm the grayest days.
How do I wear it?
For a very chic AND shocking look, we love to pair our beautiful Carlos with black or navy blue pleated trousers and pumps. More in the mood for jeans and sneakers? That's just as perfect! Carlos will bring the right amount of sophistication to make your seemingly casual outfit absolutely irresistible.
Carlos sizes correctly. Size "S" would fit a 34-36; size "M" will be ideal for a 38-40 and size "L" for a 42-44. If you are between two sizes or have a large chest, we recommend you to size up.
Sinara is 5'9 tall and wears a size S for her usual 36.
