The hot, blazing Georgia sun has unapologetically been kissing my cheeks and reminding me of its existence. Scorching southern summers have an unusual sort of wet heat that’s only further exaggerated by the fact that girls like me only wear black. The heat leaves me aching for October, when the earth turns and fall clothing reigns supreme. As always, looking at Fall RTW shows leaves me bitter at the sun and yearning for the cool simultaneously, and nothing does this more to me than looking at Carven’s latest show. Carven has always been the go-to house for high fashion French style with a London edge and classic silhouettes with a modern mix. Fall’s collection was chock full of oversize, structured coats in mustard, coral and cobalt and dresses with the perfect demure cutout. Carven’s penchant for pieces that nip the waist just right is present from start to finish with 40’s inspired silhouettes. A mid-calf skimming jumpsuit in the perfect satin rang loud in a dull peach hue and was topped off with a 70’s style belt and zipper down the front. Thigh high leather boots, leopard detailing on pockets, collars and clutches, oversized fur and fur accents,silhouette graphics on coats and dresses, not to mention clutches you actually clutch… this collection has details only Carven could pull off. Coat and mini skirt suits with the perfect mustard paneling, crystal arrows used as a graphic and sexy little numbers that aren’t scandalous create the perfect fall collection. Henry has done it again.. now if only fall could come sooner rather than later.
