Carven AW14 Credit: Catwalking



At Carven Guillaume Henry gave his girly aesthetic a grown-up spin with slit pencil skirts and over-the-knee boots...

Guillaume Henry’s Carven gains momentum with each passing season and AW14’s offering was as fashion-forward as it was commercial – a difficult blend to credibly achieve. Starting with a parade of skirt suits, comprising wide-collared, cropped jackets and either flared skater skirts or ankle-length numbers with central slits, the look was Film Noir vamp meets girly ingénue. Known for nailing outerwear, the designer issued parkas with curled-under collars and Sixties-style leopard print swing coats. Other notable motifs: arrow prints and hand shadow patterns on sweet tea dresses, over-the-knee boots, elbow-length gloves and metallic clutches.

Who we saw: Zosia Mamet (Shoshanna from Girls).

What they wore: A checked Carven coat.

In three words: We Heart It.
