PARIS — Carven has appointed Barnabé Hardy as designer for its men’s collections.
A Balenciaga alum, Hardy launched his own collection of sleekly sculpted leather jackets in 2009. He succeeds Guillaume Henry, who designed both women’s and men’s collections for Carven and is now creative director of Nina Ricci. Hardy will present his first collection for spring-summer 2016.
Carven has given no timeframe for the nomination of its new women’s designer.
