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.
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.
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.
