La Carlia – A wardrobe

What you will find in the La Carlia selection, is based solely on my aesthetics, a personal style cultivated through my life, influenced by the world, the times, different fashions, and off course; all the amazing women I have met on my way.

I want to create pieces that are made of pure materials, organic where I can – pieces that are easy to wear, not losing its effortlessness and elegance.

I have always been in love with fabrics, antique, vintage and ethnic. I started 20 years ago, building up a small collection of all sorts of interesting textiles, found on my travels. The stories of different cultures fabrics can tell is amazing and inspires me enormously.

The inspiration to this personal selection of garments, comes from pure lust: what would I like to wear that would be comfortable and still elegant. I mix Indian cottons and silks, jewellery inspired by ancient museum pieces, with Italian knit and handmade bags made right here by the lake.

I hope you will recognise the honesty and the small stories in the pieces you see, and perhaps find something that will add to your personal style.
