Runway Review: Carven Spring 2015

Designer Guillaume Henry took guests for sleek and speedy Formula 1-inspired fashion lap at the Carven Spring 2015 runway show.  Presented on a racetrack-meets-runway of yellow and black stripes was a collection that hugged curves while still managing to maintain the edgy sixties vibe that Carven customers have come to expect in the form of a signature A-line silhouette.  Carven seems to be putting an emphasis on that “easy to wear” (and easy to buy) factor, continually presenting clothes destined for commercial success thanks to their flattering shape and overall youthful appeal, and this season’s collection was no exception.  In the sporty chic amalgam were bold tops, shorts, coats and dresses embellished with contrasting stripes of primary colors, lots of zippered closures and touches of luxe python and leather trimming.  Dresses adorned with graphic lace or Japanese prints seemed innovative and particularly refined within an appealing sportswear collection that signaled the true start of the Paris fashion week races.
