Carven’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection made its formal debut at 2012 Paris Fashion Week. The business-savvy yet party-appropriate pieces displayed on the epic runway featured a muted color scheme with mauve, charcoal and wine-hued tones.
In addition to the consistent pigmentation, the fit of the apparel also remained uniform. Slouchy dresses, power suits and ankle-length pants hung loosely on the bodies of the models, and though they may be particularly thin and tall, this cut is a trademark of the Carven Spring/Summer 2013 line.
A authoritarian demeanor is similarly central to the outfits. Stiff, accentuated shoulder detailing gave off a military vibe, a choice that was bolstered by Carven’s blaring of a song that repeated the word “power” throughout the show.
