Carven Resort 2012

the Carven 2012 Resort Collection has completely swept me up into a frenzy of bowed shoes, neat collars and beautiful geographical and heidi-esque prints. too bad the model looks so unhappy, though. almost as if the creative director said to her, “listen – we need you to look as sad as possible. pretend that you hate the clothes! yeah that’s right… modelling these beautiful clothes really sucks.”

    These are gorgeous – thank you for posting them. I was already in a swoon over the yellow pinafore style yellow dress … then I scrolled down to see the bow shoes … oh my! I’m heading off for a lie down to recover now!

    maybe i should just keep this to myself, but those shoes are just too much. every time i look at them i just stare at the shoes, i don’t even know what anyone was wearing.

    you are SO right! i am not a fan of that model but oh my, the collection is stunning.

  • Reply véronique Tuesday 5 July, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    Mon Dieu. The model looks so sad and so miserable that I cannot focus on the outfits. Bouououh. il feel bad for her and I want to drag her to the beach with me. Eat tons of carbohydrates and drink a bit too much. And feel young
    (but i still love your blog,though)

    ha, I totally agree… gorgeous clothes – sad model.

  • Reply BC Tuesday 5 July, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Veronique & Mosey are right–why is this model so sad when she is wearing such exquisite clothes? While she is very beautiful, her expression is a distraction.

    Wow, the Alps t-shirt and dress are AMAZING!!!

  • Reply Vivi Tuesday 5 July, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Haha, I just read all comments and have to say, I hadnt even noticed the really sad face of the model (clothes are visually more powerful!). She looks really depressed, I agree

  • Reply Belinda Wednesday 6 July, 2011 at 1:04 am

    Oh yes. These are great. I love a sulky looking model.

    Is it just me or are resort collections looking a bit less tropical than they have in past years?

  • Reply Jaclyn Wednesday 6 July, 2011 at 1:09 am

    I love everything about this line. Each collection always has so many pieces I wish I could have. The little bows on the shoes are such an adorable touch.

  • Reply HuntGatherFashion Wednesday 6 July, 2011 at 4:57 am

    The jackets! ahhhhhhhh!!! I love the jackets. AND the shoes?! I am gonna DIY me some bright orange bow shoes, yes I am.

    Those bowed shoes are better than milk and cookies!

  • Reply Maria Monday 11 July, 2011 at 11:10 am

    love each and every piece – the coats, the dresses, the blouses, the shorts, the shoes! exquisite collection… oy, but I wonder, how can they have a model wearing these clothes – I mean there’s a bright canary yellow outfit – and be ok with such sad/miserable/empty expressions.. don’t need her smiling but hey, it’s distracting

  • Reply Audrey Thursday 14 July, 2011 at 8:09 am

    Oh man, it’s so true. Models of high fashion are usually so unrelatable in look and expression 90% of the time. It’s really similar to the way I view interiors– I want things to look real and relatable, and I don’t get that from perfectly curated white couches OR stony faced models no matter how amazing the outfit.
    Also, loving the scrunchy theme throughout this collection, it’s so playful.
