Guillaume Henry brought a touch of subversion to his Sixties schoolgirl aesthetic in his collection for Carven, by borrowing elements of ecclesiastical robes to give his flirty dresses an illicit edge. A cap-sleeve dress came in a dusty tapestry-inspired fabric with an overblown paisley print, its high white collar set off by a vertical slit at the chest. Peek-a-boo velvet dresses, tops and skirts were laser cut in circular motifs inspired by stained glass windows, while a cocktail dress in cardinal red satin was carved open at the front to reveal a white lace bra. Henry also used a richly colored print based on the Hieronymus Bosch painting, “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” to create a few delights of his own.
