frozen landscapes

Carven Pre-Fall 2012

Another winner. Designer Guillaume Henry describes the knitwear from his Pre-Fall 12 collection as being “picked from a boyfriend’s wardrobe,” while the autumnal colour palette was inspired “by a frozen landscape.”
The starting point for the collection was Diane Arbus's portraits; simple, unfussy clothes with a bit of schoolgirl charm. “I really wanted to get this feeling of the way they used to dress then in the ’60s…there was no question of age or social position.”

I'm hanging out for the first drop of the collection at Bloodorange. I would love to wear it all right now!

Collages by me using lookbook images from Carven via TFS and vintage photos of Twiggy and Jane Birkin.
