Welcome to Tess and Carlos, the newest shop in Tiverton Four Corners honorably upholding the village’s stylish reputation. Owned and operated by Tess and Carlos Pava of Cambridge MA this upscale clothing boutique offers sophisticated fashion pieces for quality-conscious customers ready to give their wardrobe some love and attention.
Tess and Carlos was founded by Tess Enright and Carlos Pava in 1995, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Although their Cambridge store is still home to the brand, the urban-chic clothing from the racks of Tess and Carlos has become a icon of metropolitan fashion far beyond the streets of Boston. Tess and Carlos is known for their carefully tailored, Italian-inspired fine cottons, linens, and printed tops and dresses. After nearly two decades in business, Tess & Carlos has expanded from their first Harvard Square store and now includes additional locations in Concord, Weston, Pittsford, NY, and now, Tiverton Four Corners.
Since the success of her urban storefronts, Tess says she was ready to get back to basics and the quiet charm and pace of Tiverton Four Corners is exactly what she had in mind. The town is, in many ways, a reflection of the Tess and Carlos brand itself: simple, casual, elegant and filled with culture.
“Our style is classic yet so different from anything you see in department stores; it’s very European,” says Tess.
And what exactly will you find at the Tiverton Tess and Carlos? Dresses, tops, accessories, and more. “Lots of people come for the t-shirts because the quality of cotton is just amazing,” says Tess, but she admits her Samantha Sung dresses are also a crowd pleaser.
“They will receive a lot of complements on what they’re wearing because the clothes are not fussy. People say, ‘Oh My God, that looks great on you,’ because it’s so simple. There’s really something for everyone.” says Tess.
In addition to stocking the work of fabulous international designers, the store offers very personalized attention and personal shoppers by request so you will walk out with everything you need to complete your on-of-a-kind wardrobe.
With summer at our fingertips, we invite you to stop by, stock up, and dress your best for this gorgeous season at Tess and Carlos. The new shop is located at 3879 Main Road in Tiverton, RI.
