Carven SS15

The Carven girl revamped: Guillaume Henry presents a mash-up of retro references, Formula 1 racing and Japanese erotic art

Initial reaction:

A need for speed – this season creative director Guillaume Henry presented a fast and furious collection that celebrated all of the traits that have come to define his revamp of the Carven girl.

The inspiration:

A mash-up of cultural references – from the retro influences of the 60s to the ecstatic graphic language of Formula 1 racing – manifested themselves in PVC python jackets and bold lines that made their way down the front of dresses like race circuits.

Standout pieces:

Seemingly Hokusai inspired Japanese prints of nude women abstracted with contemporary graphics appeared across the collection. Each design was twisted dynamically around the body, and rendered in pop colours.
