Carven is one of my favorite brand this since 2011 as it launched a wallet-friendly SS2011 collection. The outfits are designed to be versatile and clever with removable collars and plenty of add-ins. I particularly fell for the monochrome print sleeveless dress. You just need about 200EUR to own a lovely dress from this brand. Quite affordable.
This SS2012, Guillaume Henry opted for vivid colors to deliver a fresh look. I feel myself lost in a secret garden with flowers, wind and birdsong. Remarkable things:
- The main color of this collection is Orange, Flashing Pink, Mustard, Black and White
- These colors go along with strapless shirt and pleated skirts to make a sage look in general.
- Leathers and Voluminous fabrics dominate the collection. Details are pigmented by meticulous lace works and beads
- Colorful zigzags stripes are largely used while floral and polka dots are absented.
All the basics needed to constitute neat and classy looks for young girl. I LOVE this collection because it is applicable to daily life and its prices are not ridiculously high like other French brands.
However, since the designer used a lot of colorful zigzags and stripes, I found this collection has many in common with Missoni. Just fine, Carven will be certainly more wallet-friendly then Missoni... Hope so
