+Limited Edition Collection by Stina Persson for CAROLL

It is with much delight that we announce the new Limited Edition Micro-Collection by Stina Persson for the well-known French clothing label CAROLL. After some one-off designs by Stina in their 2013 collections, the fashion brand approached her about a more extensive line of clothing items featuring her iconic watercolor florals. The collection can be purchased in any of CAROLL’s global stores until end of July and can be see across their website. Time to indulge in a little shopping spree!
