Carven

Philosophy

Carven is a clothing brand for men and women; it was launched in 1945, and Guillaume Henry became the creative director in 2010.

Thanks to his career and collaborations with Givenchy and Paule Ka, Guillaume Henry gives on creations Parisian chic, urban taste both for men and women.

With the continuous play of shapes and volumes, lines and precise cuts, Carven is never showy, but focuses on a sophisticated simplicity.

Fully buttoned blouses of silk or cotton shorts, cropped pants or skirts and short, stunning dresses with clingy and provocative drapes, the brand proposes apparel for day and night.

Visible bras and culottes, maxi shirts which peeking out under skirts, with the aim to impress thanks to basic details; drapes, ribbons, prints or shantung dresses.

Matches are unusual; tartan dresses with lace, leather jackets with short skirts, mini skirts with patterned sweaters, plissé collars decorate the bare decolleté with visible bras.

The materials, which are essential in the garments creation, ranging from cotton, lace, silk, jersey, tweed and cashmere.

Carven understated elegance is ideal both for men and women, which relies entirely on cuts and clean lines.

For everyday it proposes cotton trousers, worn with V-neck shirts, degradè mesh for an eccentric touch, Bermuda shorts with blazers, while night outfits focus on light and dark suits, trousers with or without lapel.

Delicate colours, never too bold, ranging from beige to black, red, brown.
