The RTW Fall/Winter 2018 collection

A new chapter just started in the history of Carven. The author is Serge Ruffieux, who took the reins of the 70-year-old French house one month ago, after he learned the ropes at Sonia Rykiel, Moschino and Dior, ready to bring fresh air to the house despite its venerable age.

His first ready-to-wear collection for Fall-Winter 2018 is conceived for a young Parisian girl that comes from a bourgeois background; hence her style is youthful and eccentric, with an old and vintage touch that confers preciousness to her look. Contrasts between the feminine and the masculine, the young and the old, the raw and the refined, make the originality of the lineup.

Soft mohair sweaters are worn over pleated granny skirts; vintage wallpaper-looking prints are spread over dresses and irises are embroidered on the velvet yokes of coats.

A sense of craftsmanship can be perceived through the collection in its entirety: the knitwear pieces are made with elaborated perforated lace stitch; beaded crochet lace is applied on men’s shirt as an irregular hem; hard-stitching details on coats reproduce the shape of the pockets, and raw-cut edges are paired with boiled wool.

Masculine tartan shirts are given rouches and draped elastic inserts on the sleeves, while skirts are made with two rounded panels buttoned together on sideways.
