Cheeky Chic: 10 Reasons To Love Carven's Clever Take On Classics

If French insouciance had an official designer, it'd definitely be Carven. Under the direction of Guillaume Henry, the label has abandoned its couture roots in favor of an irreverent, younger look — and that's a very good thing, as far as we're concerned.
An Easter egg-colored, cashmere sweater gets a dose of cheek, courtesy of diamond cutouts. A toile-print skirt is more va-va-voom than Versailles, thanks to its slinky, bias cut. A chic maxi-dress goes outrageous in diaphanous, chartreuse crepe. These are clothes from a house newly invigorated and dedicated to dressing the modern women — with a nod and a wink to the past, of course.
