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.

  • "I discovered this beautiful brand during a pop-up store, and I fell for the Carlotta jumpsuit which fits me like a glove. It's a real pleasure to wear it. Very happy to support a brand made in France . And the designer is adorable, she takes great care of her clients. I recommend!”

    Florie S.

  • "I fell in love with the Carlotta, which combines the elegance of a dress with the comfort of a playsuit. Neat finishes, a particularly soft and breathable lining and a flattering cut, what more could you ask for?! :) It's a real pleasure to support this committed brand, with 100% French models that the passionate designer, Scarlett, has thought out down to the smallest detail."

    Anna R.

  • "Conquered by my Twiggy before even wearing it! Perfectly adjusted, highlights the curves, a jewel. The plus for the bare back, a pretty piece in the back to hide the bra. The designer is passionate, transmits her enthusiasm and sincere joy at seeing and contemplating her dresses worn. Magnificent discovery. One of the prettiest dresses in my wardrobe. Thank you Carlos Carlos Paris!”

    Laurence C.

  • "Finally a REAL brand, 100% French-made and transparent about its recipes. For my part, I immediately fell in love with the Ziggy but after discussion with the stylist I finally took the Carlotta! It is perfect and d "great quality. I really appreciated the help of the designer who explains with heart all the little details that make her dresses unique. I can't wait to see the next collection (if I don't fall for the Ziggy first) !”

    Céline F.

  • "A very nice discovery! Little dresses worked down to the smallest buttons! A very nice meeting with a designer explaining to you with passion her work from drawing to the choice of labels and eager to promote all the people with whom she works. Happy owner of Carlotta, Looking forward to the next collection!”

    Valentine C.

  • “The Carlos Carlos brand is still young but already has its character and an assertive style. For all fans of the sixties, this is definitely a brand that will please you and immerse you in its world. The three models of dresses that I tried are super pleasant, easy to wear in everyday life, for appointments or for any festive occasion, I love them! Thanks again to Scarlett, the creator of Carlos Carlos, for her passion and taste, I can't wait to see the next pieces to come!"

    Angela W.

  • "The CarlosCarlos dresses are magnificent! The after-sales service is top notch, the dresses are really of very good quality, the designer is always there to inform you and help you choose your perfect dress. I have already found my happiness: the Twiggy dress that I adore!!!"

    Anna B.

  • "Happy owner of a ZIGGY: A perfect little dress for all occasions, very pleasant and easy to wear, for me in a casual way with boots, espadrilles or clogs, sleeves rolled up or not, it is naturally chic and beautiful in all its seams: the little detail that makes all the difference: the cross darts on the chest. The fabrics are light, the lining does not stick to the skin and the zipper slides perfectly, all these finishes exude quality."

    Catherine R.

  • "I'm delighted! The playsuit is very comfortable and I love the patterns. I thought I might be a little warm with it but not at all, the lining is very breathable, it's very pleasant. I will continue to follow Carlos Carlos up close. Scarlett is passionate and it's a pleasure :)"
