Carven Fall 2014: Playful and Sophisticated (Runway Review)

The Inspiration: The trademark Carven girl, in moods both playful and sophisticated.

The Look: Guillaume Henry knows his worth as a designer of quirky, trendy, hit-making pieces. Taking cues from 60s (and before) stylings, Henry created a collection that was both trendy (collage-y graphics, cute arrow-shaped embellishments) and long-lasting (coats of every thrilling solid color, including mustard, deep coral, light brick). Incorporating both concepts is genius in being both of-the-moment and enduring. Flippy, easy dress silhouettes rule Carven shows, and it was no different today, though longer midi and maxi hems did make an appearance. Great prints, great coats—what more could you ask for?

The Accessories: Platform pumps and soft geometric clutches in a variety of fabrics.

The Beauty: A deep side part and a healthy flushed look—blush and slightly colored eyes.

The Takeaway: Carven does it again, with a trademark we're still thrilled by.
