Confession: I haven't heard of Carven until I recently saw their Spring 2011 trunk show at Barneys. I'm obsessed!!! Carven was established by Madame Carven in 1945. It was once a member of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture and known for dressing movie stars and European royalty. The label relaunched in Spring 2010 with a ready-to-wear line by creative director, Guillaume Henry, former assistant to Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci. Haute Couture sensibility at wallet-friendly prices? Yes, please!
