Everyone's Wearing Carven! Rihanna, Beyonce & Victoria Beckham Go Crazy For The Super Cool French Label!

2 August 2012

Bonjour! Now, what’s all this chicness that’s been dressing Hollywood’s finest, and our other favourite stars on the other side of the pond? Why it’s Carven of course! We recognise those cool prints and sexy silhouettes from a hundred passes!
Over at Grazia HQ we’ve been rather Carven crazy for a while now, in fact it’s always one of our favourite presentations at Paris Fashion Week because not only is it gorgeous and wonderfully unique- take a closer look at their perfectly cut, preppy shirt collars and impeccable, jutting out skater skirts- But it’s super wearable too!
So is it any wonder Carven has become the A-list favourite of the summer? We think not! Their head turning prints in easy to wear silhouettes- enter Rihanna and Beyonce’s zig-zag blouse and Katy Perry’s map frock- are ideal for making an entrance with minimum effort, and we love Carven’s sexy bandage style dresses and tops for easy evening elegance. 
It’s Guillaume Henry, currently at the French fashion house’s helm, to thank for Carven’s sterling collections; he’s the man responsible for its incarnation, which took off in 2009 when the label burst back onto the fashion scene. 
In fact his ultra modern aesthetic makes it hard to believe this hip, exciting label harps back to the mid-forties, but it was then that French couturier Madame Carmen de Tommaso opened Carven’s doors, dressing the hottest film stars, and royals of the era. Now, the 21st Century Carven’s ever growing ready-to-wear and accessories collections have been embraced once again by both the fashion world and Hollywood alike… So what’s next? Some 2012 royal dressing perhaps? …Well we for one would love to see Kate Middleton in Carven’s signature bow sling-backs!
