Carven Fall 2013: In a Barbie World
Carven's creative director, Guillaume Henry, always likes his quintessentially '60s Parisian girl to travel: She's gone to swinging London for resort 2013; she's gone on vacation to Brittany and Bavaria (remember the lederhosen in Spring 2012?); she's gotten medieval on us (in Fall 2012), and this season, like in Back to the Future, she seems to have time traveled. Flash forward and believe it or not, there were hints of the garish '80s in Carven's fall line up in the way of bold zebra stripe pattern on leather dresses, tops and little box bags; a penchant for hot pink and pastels; and, yes, crimped hair. Has the Carven girl discovered Barbie?
