PARIS — Groupe Jacques Bogart has acquired the Carven fragrance and cosmetics business from Groupe Béranger. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The Carven fashion brand is becoming trendy anew under hot designer Guillaume Henry. The house was founded by Madame Carven in 1945 and is credited by many as the first to design ready-to-wear. Its recent collections have had a spirit of youthful Parisian elegance, offering reasonably priced, freshly chic pieces meant to be thrown together.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
