Carven |Nautical Girls & Pastel Princesses
With just two seasons under their belts Adrien Caillaud and Alexis Martial headed out to sea with a Nautical theme and beach shades for the Carven Spring/Summer 2016 Paris Fashion Week collection. The collection pays homage to young women that like to travel, and are ready for a cruise or a yacht party. Think the Hampton’s or the South of France in early June attire.
DÉFILÉ DU JOUR Carven Spring 2016 PFW
The Carven Spring 2016 collection ranged from above the sea with nautical attire, but also swam with the mermaids with pastel colors, sand pink and orange with occasional black included. We see crisp striped shirts a major trend for this Spring, zippered scuba-style tops and sweaters in swirling bubble prints. More stand out pieces were the printed windbreaker jackets perfect for a day out on the boat in style.
The new Carven duo stuck to their esthetic put in place last season for the fall collection with the high-waisted skirts we love, perfect all types of women and shapes. They just added a more younger feel with miniskirts and lean tailored pants Parisian women love. Another French touch was the sixties vibe with the navy theme on a few pieces, with A-Line skirts with circular cutouts at the hem some of the must have pieces from the collection with a matching top. I really liked how the garments were styled too, they accessoriesed without blatantly over styling. It was styled like a women on the go, who has a boat and needs to be prepared for all types of weather.
The collection also waved back and forth from very feminine to very masculine looks. We saw stand out pieces like the shirts and tops in patchwork of white cotton, striped poplin and spongy knits that provided a trim counterpoint to more stand out pieces like the white halter dress covered with frills. Accessories where kimono styled belts and cool comfy sandals.
