August 5, 2022
It's been a year since Carmen Hofstädter-Ponta started designing Carmensita's chic summer dresses. Now, the collection – limited to 100 exclusive pieces – is finally available, "paying homage to summer and nature," per the up-and-coming Austrian designer. They're the ideal attire for your next short trip to the French Riviera, a long weekend in Capri or balmy summer nights in Mallorca.

A Natural Look for the Summer
The naturally timeless cut of Carmensita's dresses, which gently grace the silhouette, are universally flattering. They flutter elegantly in the wind on a sailing trip and move to your rhythm at a fiery flamenco class. "I wanted to design a dress that is perfect for the summer – light, fresh and carefree," says the designer.

The delicate color palette of white, beige, rose, ocher, gold and green is created from high-quality, brilliant dyes. Breathable and allergy-friendly viscose is carefully dyed by hand. The "Coloured-by-Nature" dress is dyed with natural dyes. "I obtain the colors from plants that grow outside my front door. When it comes to the production, I like to act intuitively. I'm always open to experimenting and trying out new things," says Hofstädter-Ponta.
A summer look, made in Austria
The collection is largely produced in Austria – from creating the line in Hofstädter-Ponta's studio in Velden am Wörthersee to the implementation and production at one of Austria's leading ready-to-wear companies in Styria. The designer sources the fabrics from trustworthy European partner companies.
