Carven Pre-Fall Proves, Once Again, That Smart Is Sexy

Just how we get excited for hot dates that can wax poetic about something a bit more substantial than reality TV and last weekend's epic rager, we're suckers for a collection that also proves it, too, has a beautiful mind. Thoughtful, imaginative, and even a bit quirky, Carven pre-fall is the latest example on our radar.
There is quite a bit happening in the new set of designs — it features everything from printed statement coats and knit turtlenecks to skirt suits, both tailored and oversized or metallic and modern. The looks are not only seasonal with large, thick scarves that tie above matching power-blue peacoats, but they're also unexpected with tropical prints and collared, lace dresses that give the sweet fabric a sophisticated upgrade. Pulled together, Carven pre-fall is refined yet eccentric, and overall, a thing of beauty for any brainiac.
Skip ahead for a peek at the entire lookbook, librarian-chic specs optional.
