"Barbara is a nod to my first professional life, in market finance. It is THE dress that I would have liked to wear during my client meetings: resolutely elegant, but with some exquisite cheeky details that make all the difference, without overdoing it. A perfect compromise, between the duty of representation and the affirmation of one's singularity." -Scarlett

Micro-editions & numbered specimen

Additional information

It is said of the Barbaras that their strong character is matched only by their infinite curiosity. Free souls, they live their life as they see fit and can be... slightly stubborn. In a word: Barbaras are true Carlos-Carlos' ladies!

Under our pencil, Barbara is a tribute to the "Power Dressing" of the 70s. A mischievous - and deliciously cheeky - revisit of the "banker suit"... in a dress.

This truly Couture dress combines originality and elegance. Its straight, flattering cut will suit all body types, while its exquisite puff sleeves and the orange bias of its pockets will bring the right touch of fantasy. Barbara will be the perfect dress to wear whether for an important professional meeting or a fancy dinner.

Main fabric: 100% Virgin wool
Sleeves: 100% Cotton
Lining: 100% Cupro (orange, our signature!)

Care instruction:
Good news! Barbara 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, choose the "delicate-wool" mode of your iron. Any doubt? Entrust your loved one to an ecological laundry or call us for further advice!

🌱 In Spring: you can enjoy your beautiful Barbara until the Spring season ends, wearing her as she comes, bare legs and, why not?!, sleeves rolled up to exacerbate their masterful volume!

🍁 In Autumn / Winter: unquestionably, THE season of our beautiful Barbara. With her woolen fabric and poplin sleeves, she will be self-sufficient to help you get through winter with elegance - and cheekiness! On the legs, you can pair her with 20-30 denier tights, black or brown.

👠 What do I put on my feet?
We love to break up the "tailored" side of Barbara with sneakers or boots. To stay in a more classic atmosphere, bet everything on heels - black or colored! - or, on cooler days, on a nice pair of boots. For a preppy look, opt for patent derbies.

Barbara fits true-to-size.
