Carven keeps it chic at Paris Fashion Week
Carven stayed true to its chic aesthetic during Paris Fashion Week on Thursday morning (03Mar16)
Design duo Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud, who took over the reigns last year (15), unveiled a stylish, wearable Autumn/Winter 16 range complete with both graphic prints and one-tone pieces.
For those looking to make a statement during the daytime, there was a grey wrap-coat with a black belt and a black and white stripe down the collar, as well as a pastel purple padded jacket. The rainy winter days were taken into account too thanks to a shiny black rain mac with a large tie around the waist.
Relaxed eveningwear made an appearance in the form of a pale blue and white wavy-print skirt worn with a long sleeved top featuring bright blue sparkling embellishments on the front. The most feminine offering of them all though was a baby pink mini dress, with cut outs around the bottom rim and detailing to resemble a bra over the chest. Paired with a cute matching coloured clutch, this particular number had a retro Parisian vibe to it.
Earlier in the morning, Chloe toyed with textures for its Autumn/Winter 16 collection, boasting everything from leather to tulle. The French fashion house mixed things up for its latest range, with designer Clare Waight Keller sending an array of clashing pieces down the runway.
The brand's official Twitter account described the line as one for "romantic wanderers" as models floated in garments like a peach coloured gown with a ruffled layered skirt and a sheer dress with long, billowing caped sleeves as well as a train. The front featured colourful detailing resembling feathers, giving the illusion the girl could spread her wings and take flight.
In contrast were outfits such as red, beige and black striped leather trousers worn with a matching jacket, and a black long-sleeved leather jumpsuit, complete with a small Parisian-style scarf around the beck.
Cover ups featured heavily too, with coats in the form of a dark green fur number and a fluffy white design.
Shows continue on Thursday with the likes of Balmain and Rick Owens presenting.
