Carven Pre-Fall 2012

Our first Carven shipment of the Fall season is here!

For the Pre-Fall collection, designer Guillaume Henry drew inspiration from a Diane Arbus photo exhibition in Paris. Her portraits capture the timeless, casual elegance of the 1960s, which Henry translated into garments of an equally timeless quality.

He pointed out that the 1960s was a time before prêt-à-porter. Thus, women had to wear garments for a very long time, and took care of them. This quality of craftsmanship and fabric selection shines through in the Pre-Fall collection. Definitely not fast fashion, these are pieces you can imagine wearing for years to come.

Gorgeous two-tone cable knit sweaters, perfectly tailored wool trousers, and skirts and dresses featuring voluminous yet flattering draping techniques are highlights of the collection. And the amazing mottled and felted wool coats in rich colors like royal blue must be seen and touched in person.

Visit us and try on our new Carven looks, and find out why this is a label whose reputation continues to grow in prominence.

See you soon,
