The results of fashion’s latest round of musical chairs are showing this season, and after the departure of Guillaume Henry last year, Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial are up as the new brains behind Carven. The Givenchy and Iceberg alums, respectively, repackaged the brand’s young Parisienne with a retrofuture twist. Pants were ankle-cropped, high-rise, and cut super-slim; skirts riffed on a classic mod A-line mini; oversized circular necklaces tucked under collars shone like talismans sourced from deep space (or perhaps, from the closet of The Great Tyrant in Barbarella). Ski sweaters and sheer striped socks paired with clunky spectator loafers channeled a schoolgirl insouciance, but all-over floral jacquards, fashioned into matchy-matchy ’70s bomber jackets and tailored trousers, proposed a much needed alternative to the classic power suit. Something we can get behind.
