    Is it just us, or does Carven's fall ad campaign fool you into thinking it's about time for an eye checkup? Ditch the glasses and stop your squinting though, because it seems Carven has created an intentionally out-of-focus playground in the Forêt de Fontainebleau, a picturesque setting just south of Paris, for its latest campaign.

If you're feeling like you're having a hard time focusing — no worries. Just drift away into this hazy forest dream...but make sure your boss knows that you're just "resting your eyes."
