With a Parisian flair that is difficult to define, Carven has always had its own way of doing things. The fashion house has roots in 1940s haute couture but is better known for its playfully sophisticated ready-to-wear.
French label Carven has been an icon of modern Parisian style since it was founded in 1944 by Marie-Louise Carven. Thanks to the designer’s frequent travels, Carven is credited with being one of the first houses to use motifs from Africa and India, like batik, in its designs. Today, Carven clothing and accessories continue to stay ahead of trends while maintaining timeless appeal, counting sleek booties, chic tops, and statement coats among the luxe offerings.
