Post #51: Something to Note - Carven

One of my favorite fashion lines this season is Carven. Designed by Guillaume Henry (who has previously been behind Givenchy), Carven's return to the fashion scene has received a lot of press recently. With pieces covering the line and designer in the April editions of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar (and supporters such as Net-a-Porter and Alexa Chung), Carven is definitely something to note. 
The Spring/Summer 2011 collection was described as being "bourgeois, but with a nasty side," sporting unique cut-outs in many of its pieces. Two of my favorites included the Bow-Back Ruched Taffeta Dress and the Cotton-blend Jacquard Dress. These three looks off of the runway also made my favorites list: 

As if Spring weren't exciting enough, I believe that the real pièce de résistance is the Fall 2011 collection. As featured below, the collection's richer hues and heavier fabrics lend to its signature playfulness. 

But what I find most striking about this collection is the fact that pieces of it can so easily be added to your closet and incorporated into some of your favorite outfits. That being said, happy shopping...or at least check it out.
