A formidable fashion house since its creation in 1945, the Carven brand has reinvented itself in the last two years, creating covet-worthy collections that are beautiful, whimsical and oh so wearable. As stated on their website, the Carven philosophy believes in a "particularly democratic vision of fashion. A woman who was free and unshackled by convention, Madame Carven entered the rarefied world of 1940’s haute couture as a complete novice, bringing with her a freshness and spontaneity of style that resembled the daily lives of women of the time. She was the first to offer accessible luxury and to capture the spirit of the moment through her simple and refined designs, inspired by Parisian chic where style took precedence over ostentation."
Although I adore almost every piece from the fall/winter 2010 collection, here are some of my favorites.
