If you’re lucky enough to travel to Cartagena, Colombia, this summer, be prepared to see one dress in particular on every in-the-know, stylish woman. On my recent trip to the beautiful Caribbean city, I asked Colombian designer Silvia Tcherassi which one of her dresses is the most popular in her Cartagena boutique, and she was quick to respond: the Selvino Dress ($2500).
“The Selvino Dress is one of the most versatile pieces I’ve ever made; it’s a new classic,” Tcherassi told Who What Wear. “You can go from casual to party with a simple change of accessories. Some people arrive to Cartagena thinking that it is another tourist destination and never imagine that the women dress up at night to go to restaurants and then to the club. They see this dress in the window of my boutique or posted in Instagram and fall in love immediately. Also, its fluid silhouette and bright color match perfect with the city—and then you can wear it effortlessly in Santa Monica or Saint-Tropez, day or night.”
Harper’s Bazaar España contributing editor Sofía Paramio Delgado, below, is just one of the chic women who have worn the dress in Cartagena—you can see for yourself just how well it blends in. Although Paramio’s yellow version promptly sold out on Net-a-Porter, the dress is still available in black-and-white, so get clicking. Scroll down to see the dress in question and shop the brand.
