Tess & Carlos

Feeling in need of a foreign fling? Come dally among the handsome imports at Newton’s Tess & Carlos—at 4,000 square feet, the biggest and most temptation-filled of the retailer’s three stores. Co-owner Tess Enright has a gift for sifting Euro treasures from Euro trash, yielding Hoss Intropia dresses fit for American gamines, stern-but-chic work separates by Jil Sander, classic Etro knits, and baby-soft Majestic tees. Save yourself the airfare and put that useless phrasebook away: A Bostonian’s tour of the world’s fashion capitals begins, and ends, right here.
