Who was Carmen?
Our 2011 Carmen Miranda vintage tee is inspired by the beautiful and spectacular Maria do Carmo Miranda de Cunha, or Carmen Miranda as most people knew her. This Portuguese-born Brazilian has been dubbed the Latin American Marilyn Monroe. She became a hit in the 1943 after wearing her signature fruit hat in the movie The Gang’s All Here in 1943. From her birth in Portugal to her life in Brazil and the US, Carmen was a charm never to forget. We are inspired by her life, work, and most of all, the positive attitude and energy that she continuously gave off throughout her career. There looks like there is extra spacing between “only girl”.
