In his final collection for Carven, Guillaume Henry presented a well-studied Pre-Fall 2015 collection that was as functional as it was charming. In a palette of mostly chocolate, navy, caramel, beige and mocha, the looks exuded a warm and easy flair despite their whimsical, strongly retro-animated tinge.
The playful graphic tone continued with color-blocking patterns, as seen on an otherwise sober, male-inspired wool coat. Skirts descending halfway down the calves and high-waisted culottes accentuated the collection’s Seventies vibe, which also featured cropped sweaters in generously oversized, openwork cable knits. If only all nine-to-five days were this fun.
