Guillaume Henry, the designer of Carven, knows that French fashion must have a certain unique flare. Sometimes that flare may be colorful and extravagant and sometimes that flare may be subtlety chic. Carven's Fall 2011 ready-to-wear show may have opted for #2, but regardless the collection was unique.While this budding fashion house was launched only 2 years ago it is making serious impressions on some of fashions most influential people.
The label is all about bourgeois, true francophile style. Ladies look proper and prim in Carven without looking dowdy or old fashioned. Guillaume Henry's muses for this particular collection were Lee Miller and Simone de Beauvoir. Mission accomplished! The collection was simplistically basic....think: Chanel and the classic little black dress.
Here are some of my favorite looks from the collection:
