Discovering Carven – On the lookout for new (well new to me) good quality brands in an attempt to reduce the proportion of high street clothing in my wardrobe I discovered Carven!
In 1945 Mrs Carven , a petite lady couldn’t find anything to wear so decided to create her own label, becoming very successful with her Haute Couture. Later the label went into a “sleepy” zone only to be bought by a French entrepreneur in 1945 who believes fashion should be accessible without compromising on quality.
I adore the fact that Mrs Carven lived to be 105 – have decided that is what is to come of all small fashionistas – smile.
Carven is a brand I had previously seen in shops and yet always walked past until last week, discovering their fabulous flagship store in Sloane Square, London. This is where I bought these fab new winter shorts which I seem to be living in ever since ;-)
I had fab fun in the store trying on what seemed like half the store but what impressed me most (apart from the lovely staff of course) was the fabrics – so rich to touch. In all honesty I could have walked out with half the store had I had the budget;-) What I really love about the shorts is how versatile they are, you can wear them with boots or brogues or pumps depending on the mood and occasion. Add a shirt and long cardigan or blazer or simply dress down with a simply cardigan as I have done…these days there doesn’t seem to be an excuse for me not to wear my shorts 😉

Even one piece of Carven alone in your wardrobe would make a huge difference!
