On the heels of their first runway effort for fall, design duo Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial continued to establish the codes of the new Carven wardrobe for resort. Their silhouettes were defined, often high-waist on short or long lengths with a special focus on lean pants to elongate the leg — riffing on a Seventies vibe with flared styles done in fluid stretch cotton to add a bit of a relaxed attitude to the Parisian chic.
A Seventies camping scene served as the main inspiration, with collages of caravans adorning the front of a simple T-shirt or “psychedelic” flowers of the kind seen on old-school sleeping bags printed on skirts, dresses and swimsuits (as the duo unveiled their newly signed license for swimwear with Italian company Albisetti). Other naïve flowery motifs included a clover on cotton blouson and matching skirts and Mimosas embroidered on pale pastel organza.
The duo mixed in staples such as leather parkas and button-front skirts and electrified the sweetness with an unusual color palette: savvy neutrals, such as camel, used for a mackintosh-fabric A-line skirt, as well as technical raffia T-shirt and natural linen shorts, mixed with more daring shades of acid green and bright orange or pastels such as lilac, pale yellow and baby blue.
