Carven Fall Winter 2014 collection

May 29, 2014

 At the Carven show, designer Guillaume Henry sent out a poignant collection that was in equal parts youthful and sophisticated. It was a return to the elegant French ingénue muse that was at the heart of Henry’s initial success with his revival of the Carven brand.

The collection had a definite 1940s vibe to it, both in its strong-shouldered and synched waist silhouettes. But also the functionality of each of the pieces and the stellar footwear felt very much a part of the essence of that era. 

Coats are the main event at Carven, but this is a far prettier affair than most of the outerwear offerings at Fashion Week. The Carven girl was sent forth by designer Guillaume Henry in a gorgeous palette of rose, saffron, salmon, blush, and royal blue – shades that were either monochrome or warped into colorful abstract prints. Swaddled in plush, padded textures, Carven guaranteed a warm, stylish winter for its patrons.

This was a very sold show from a designer who is finding his own path in the fashion world. It is one that many women are going to want to continue to follow him on.
