Starvin' For Some Carven
I love it when an old fashion house gets brushed up and injected with some cc's of cool. The French house of Carven is no different: started up in 1945 but run down by debt in the 90s, only to be rejuvenated now by the talented Guillaume Henry. I had fallen for the brand seeing a few twee little dresses on the likes of Alexa Chung and on Net-A-Porter, but I'm completely smitten now after seeing their S/S12 collection for men. I normally refrain from posting collections too far ahead, but I couldn't hold on to these gems for another year now could I? How can you not love the powder colour palettes, the colour blocks, teal shorts, the amazing tweed booties and romantic silhouettes? Très français, quoi!
