Marie Louise Carven founded the house of Carven in 1945 on the Champs Elysees in Paris. She had a strong flare for youthful textiles and silhouettes which has been carried with the brand to this day. In SS18 Serge Ruffieux unveiled his first collection for Carven as Creative Director after nearly a decade at Christian Dior. Ruffieux will carry Carven into a new chapter with an affinity for madame Carven’s vision of fashion. Timeless tailoring and feminine delicate silhouettes remain the heart of the Carven design.
