Carven Spring 2012

Carven is swiftly becoming one of my favourite brands.

This morning during Paris Fashion Week, Guillaume Henry presented a Parisian elegant collection for Spring 2012 which had plenty of girlie charm.

We saw many short dresses with A-lined skirts, more midriff-baring dresses – which continue to be a trend for Spring 2012 – luxe short suits, sweaters layered over shirts and paired with paper bag shorts, buttery leather dresses – which were also a trend this summer – and long-sleeve lace accented tunic dresses.

I was excited that this collection was full of colourful looks from cool blue and ivory to hot mustard and fuchsia pink.

Guillaume always adds prints to his collections; on this occasion he presented stripes and exotic ikat prints.

The other signature were the Peter Pan collars which no Carven collection goes without.

With the unseasonable hot weather in Paris today, we could wear these pieces right now.

Key accessories included sporty backpacks, striped clutches, loafer, flatforms, creepers, sunglasses, and platform sandals accented with brass bells.

    Overall a nice collection, but I didn’t like the Oktoberfest/dirndl look.

    Fresh and happy looking. It’s well made and has such a palatable price point. I love it too!

      Yes the prices are so very reasonable

    Carven is also becoming one of my favorite brands. Clothes are very quirky and wearable, almost Lolita like with its school girl like details. Some of the cuts reminded me of Mario Schwab last spring collection.

    Overall, very nice clothes.

    Not one show would have looked out for. Thanks for bringing to our attention, some really nice summer staples pieces here.
