Beauty in Mundane: Carven Pre-Fall 2012
"Ordinary people looking extraordinary," is how Guillaume Henry described his inspiration for Carven’s Pre-Fall collection. The designer - whose new line was largely inspired by Diane Arbus images from the 1960’s - finds beauty in the places where it’s unexpected. He’s described his perfect muse as a girl on a subway with a natural sense of style regardless of money, found wearing handmade or handed down clothes. It’s this effortless element that we can’t resist in this visionary’s pre-fall line. The collection boasts two-tone sweaters, mohair turtlenecks and timeless hunting jackets; all in autumnal colors Henry describes as inspired by “a frozen landscape.” What we love is not simply the sweaters that could have been plucked from a boyfriend’s closet, or the over-the-knee dresses that make us feel playful, but the fact that Henry brings us full circle by inventing his own version of “classic.” Henry continues to toe the line, while inspired by Diane Arbus, who was always known for featuring the marginal. What a perfect marriage.
