I’m not normally a huge fan of big labels, they can sometimes seem overwhelming and I can never picture how they would be wearable on a day-to-day basis. Which is generally not the point of them, but I can’t truly appreciate anything unless I feel I can wear it in real life. That being said, Carven could be my one and only exception. Guillaume Henry never seems to disappoint, and his A/W ’12 upholds this right. He designs clothes with subtle yet beautiful detail and are also totally wearable. I could see myself in anyone of these pieces, maybe with the exception of the peplum-style sweater. The whole collection is full of rich colors, which could brighten any dreary day. Structured dresses in celadone, mini skirt and jacket sets, beautiful cotton lace, multicolored striped wool, big collars, shorts in mossy green, cut-out suede, bright silk dresses and the wedge t-strap shoes!! The whole collection is actually pretty simple (which i love), but the fabrics and styling make it so fun (I sound like an old lady). I’m a huge fan of wearing dresses and skirts all year round, so this whole collection is pretty much my ideal for fall/winter wear.
