For Fall/Winter 2014, coats are the main event at Carven, but this is a far prettier affair than most of the outerwear offerings at Fashion Week. The Carven girl was sent forth by designer Guillaume Henry in a gorgeous palette of rose, saffron, salmon, blush, and royal blue – shades that were either monochrome or warped into colorful abstract prints. Swaddled in plush, padded textures, Carven guaranteed a warm, stylish winter for its patrons.

Sensuality is spliced into the range of protective outerwear with glossy thigh-high boots, mid-thigh hemlines, and a feminine silhouette that was cinched in at the waist with wide cloth belts. The effect was unabashedly girly and simultaneously sophisticated. Appliqués were used to bring a playful side to the presentation. Models pressed shiny silk clutches to their chests as they walked the runway in beautifully cut separates and must-have outerwear, adding an unexpected layer of desirability to the overall ensemble. Carven also presented a variety of icons, like gloved hands, legs in mid-stride, and a cute bouquet of arrows, influenced in part by the Dadaist art movement. This collection tells a coming-of-age story that parallels the brand’s own successful growth. The Carven girl is making her way in the world, clutching her possessions to her chest while road-testing a more graceful, mature wardrobe with a future that is not yet written.
