Carven Pre Fall 2012

Carven

Does Guillaume Henry ever get it wrong? Judging from Carven’s consistently covetable collections, I’d have to say probably not. Since the French heritage brand re-launched x seasons ago under Guillaume’s expert leadership it has fast become a fash pack favourite but I challenge anyone to claim to be more obsessed than me. The fusion of classic elegance, preppy chic and playfulness that oozes from Carven’s every collection could not physically BE more up my street. Given the sheer gorgeousness of Carven’s sell out print short suits for SS12, it was hard to believe that Henry could create another collection I loved more but do you know what? I think he’s managed it.

Carven

Swinging 60s meets haute couture was the order of the day in luxe wools and rich, autumnal hues. Adorable skirt suits, immaculate tailoring and polo-necked knits give the collection an Audrey Hepburn esque polish while restrained detailing and androgynous touches ooze gamine Parisian cool. Uptown girl meets left bank beatnik If I owned just one of these beautiful boxy jackets I think my life would actually be complete… Whoever said material things couldn’t bring you happiness clearly wasn’t shopping at Carven.

Love Ella. X

  1. The way you are so descriptive and play with words. Did you learn about fashion? I love reading your articles because of how you write.
    Preppy chic is okay, though I am not a carven fan. The pieces look good.

  3. I don't know I really love Catven. It's one of the few labels that excites me. Guillaume Henry is amazing!!! Look at the Resort 2013 and you'll just die
