Carven’s Technicolour Dream Dresses (and shoes and bags)

MAN! the Carven Spring 2012 collection made me ooh and aah with every dress, every shoe and every backpack. looking at each piece made me think of myself as a teenager – my sixteen year old self would have loved to dress like this every day. that’s not to say that 28-year-old-me wouldn’t want to dress this way every day… it would feel like i was always on a summer holiday, on the search for my next gelato.

oh and don’t even TALK to me about that mustard leather dress.

Ulyana Sergeenko

yesterday i had a jaw on the floor moment when i saw the lookbook for the debut collection by Ulyana Sergeenko spotted on Lisa’s blog (do you read Lisa’s blog? you should). you may know Ulyana from street style blogs, as she is often seen at various fashion weeks around the world. i didn’t even realise that she was a designer – but the collection is 100% her. especially when she was spotted in this red dress and wore these shoes, not to mention this little get up.

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.”
