Shop the new interactive Carven Fall 2015 collection presentation created by freshly minted designers Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud.
The modernist vision of the design duo is exposed via the warm and striking architectural background. The collection showcases pastels and 90’s inspired prints, and rocking what seems to be giant gold medallions.
The duo kept alive the Sixties, feminine Parisian spirit with short, neat A-line skirts and nifty psychedelic floral jacquards, but distanced themselves from its strictly ladylike aspect with leaner cuts and one very important idea: “The new Carven girl is wearing pants,” said Martial.
Pants are hardly a novel concept, but they liberated the collection. The fit was sharp and modern: high-waisted and worn with skinny belts, with a bit of stretch and tight, streamlined straight legs that hit above the ankle. These were shown in sophisticated trippy colors — lilac, aubergine, tomato red, cobalt blue, as well as black — that electrified the look while grounding it in wearable cool for the contemporary market. On top, there were fitted après-ski sweaters, crisp shirts with graphic gold disks decorating the collars, and an array of great tailored coats, cropped and long, some classic, some in nice textured leather.
