In 1976, dance teacher Pascale Tozzi decided to branch out into the fashion industry. She named her first boutique Carioca out of an adoration for Brazilian music. From 1989 on, her nieces Marie-Luce and Sandrine Piergigli worked with her in the shop. The women joined forces and launched Carioca Collection in 2003 in Corsica. With varied backgrounds in fashion design and business, the women created a line that instinctively understands and flatters the female form.
More than just a label, Carioca Collection is a concept with a strong identity. These seamless pieces have a second skin quality and hidden seams, putting the spotlight on colors and clean silhouettes. The collections are cutting edge and versatile, wearable in all settings, and have been designed for contemporary life with travel in mind. Each aspect of Carioca Collection's design is carefully chosen to create an unforgettable and undeniably modern aesthetic, from reversible fabrication to subtle embellishments.
Inspired by the sea in Corsica, Carioca collections continue to be designed by Sandrine Piergigli. The collections are modern and versatile, wearable in all circumstances and have been conceived for today's life. Carioca Collection will transform your next escape, from the pool sides of Miami to the exotic beaches of Rio de Janeiro. Look chic on your next getaway with Carioca Collection.HIDE DESIGNER TEXT
