Our Carven Collection: A Rich Heritage
Carven is a well-known French fashion has that was established in Paris back in 1945 by Madame Carven de Tommaso. The label was the first fashion house to make clothes for petite women such as Madame Carven herself, which was a very democratic and Parisian view of fashion design. The brand quickly built a reputation for itself and its clientele grew to include both royals and screen stars alike.
The label continued being a couture house that offered luxury clothing and frequently attracted many members of European royalty until 1958. It was in 1958 that the brand finally ventured into ready to wear collections.
With the couture industry in a state of gradual decline, the brand stopped couture production in the early 1990ís. In 1995 and at the impressive age of 84, Madame Carven eventually hung up her scissors and allowed the business to focus on the ready to wear collections with the guidance of Edward Archour and later Pascal Millet back in 2001.
The year 2009 was an important one in the rebirth of the brand. In that year, Guillaume Henry became the creative director of the brand after having worked for Givenchy as well as Paule Ka. It was during this period that the brand relaunched with a new identity, one of a modern, ready-to-wear label. Henry is credited with the quick development of the brand. Henry left the brand in 2014. Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial took over the designing in the label starting autumn 2015.
The label has been described as the brand for Parisian It-girls and celebrates is unmatched ability of fusing tailoring with sultry shapes along with graceful flourishes of astounding feminine designs. With its playful hues and unique prints, the brand stands for boy-meets-girl French chic. The label offers feminine dresses, flirty skirts, tailored jackets and pants to keep fans captivated with each collection.
The brand has managed to continue holding the attention of the global fashion community by offering simple yet refined designs that reflect the stylized elegance of Parisian chic.
