With a new successor at the helm, Carven is back and honestly, the label is looking better than ever. For his debut collection, Swiss born Dior alum Serge Ruffieux turned to the founder of the storied French house, Madame Carven, for the core of his inspiration. Smocked collar shirts, panelled mini-length dresses, tailored cut out dresses, and knit jacquard vests – all with the most distinctive details – are meant to emanate Carven’s love of world travel, her propensity towards the color green, and her signature retro, aristocratic flair. And all those tassel adorned flats?! Mais, oui!
