Carven Fall-Winter 2013-2014 RTW Fashion Show


PARIS - "We wanted this woman to be vulnerable but attractive at the same time," says GUillaume Henry of his Fall 2013 collection for Carven at Paris Fashion Week. Makeup is plain and fresh, with hair held back by a headband. There a lot of girly details, pinks, and more but they are juxtaposed with an aggressive side, which is also being pushed through latex, zebra prints and heavy shoes. Others compare it to a cozy blanket or a plush toy. Above all, everything is wearable.

Appearances: Samantha Gradoville, Elsa Sylvan, Nina Haverkamp, Yumi Lambert, Tilda Lindstam, Kel Markey, Marine Deleeuw, Katlin Aas, Linda Fargo (Bergdorf Goodman), Ines de la Fressange, Manon Leloup, Magda Laguinge 

Mood/style:
Guillaume Henry’s Miss Carven, the Parisian that is a bit mischievous and a bit serious, has grown up. She wraps herself in voluminous coats that are like ‘80s robes, in teddy bears, with experimental avant-garde fabrics in double neoprene; and she prefers sugary colors with a touch of artificiality. She feels vulnerable and wants to be protected from harsh temperatures. She’s confused and she debates between duplicity and extreme choices. How can one tell her she’s wrong? But she leaves us with nostalgia for the Miss Carven who is more resolute and coquette, even if more naive

Lengths:
mini and below-the-knee

Colors:
dusty pink, candy pink, sky blue, beige, bordeaux, black, ivory

Shapes:
the abundant volumes of robe coats and pea-coats contrast with dresses pinafores in snug lines. A great deal of study went into the fabrics which increase the volumetrics of the pieces, accentuated by cold and filmy candy colors

mary-janes and lace-up shoes with rubber wedges, satin sandals with shaped heels
