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.

    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)

    I know this is all about the clothes but the shoes are what really grabs me! They are phenomenal!

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

    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!!!

  16. 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

    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?

    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.

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

    I’ll take the skirt (dress?) in the left photo, second row, and the blue satchel on the left in the last photo, post haste.

    Those bowed shoes are better than milk and cookies!

  27. 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

  28. 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.
