At a time when haute couture ruled the fashion scene, Carven was giving women approachable pieces with couture quality to fit their everyday lives. In 1945, Madame Carmen de Tommaso began the luxury brand, creating very relaxed, ready-to-wear clothing with a Parisian point of view featuring pops of color, clever details, and always a feminine air.

The spirit of Carven’s couture days can be seen in today’s designs through rich textiles and inspired, but accessible items that women can be seen working, playing, and relaxing in.
The Summer 2012 line is a great example of how Carven can take a woman from day to night, or from the office to the beach in one collection.
Colors in Summer 2012 run the gamut from cobalt blues, black and white, to pink, mustard and camel. With shorts, crop tops, baby doll dresses, skirts, and jackets among the items on offer, Carven finds a way to be sophisticated and demure in one ensemble and flirty and quirky in the next.
Florals and graphic designs add a touch of fun while cute cut outs at the chest and waist are a great way to show come skin this summer. Visit to see more.
