Paris Fashion Week: Carven Autumn/Winter 14
A gentle nod towards history
Known to be a little more restrained less cheerful than the spring collections, Autumn/Winter usually welcomes shades of burgundy, navy blue and black. Step up Carven, which has become a bit more serious – despite being in its relative youth, when you consider that Guillaume Henry has only been tasked with reviving the much-loved historical brand for the past five years, since 2009.
And this season, he is interested in pre-war fashion and art. Skirts were elongated, a pale pink coat with a little volume seemed slightly faded in lusture. Even coat collars and shirts seemed grown up.
But this does not mean that the lines has lost its youthful enthusiasm – Carven still makes clothes for women that make the most out of, and enjoy life to the full, whatever age they may be.
