For the resort collection 2014, the Carven woman gets inspired by Nina Simone’s allure, at the dawn of the 70s. Her allure is at the crossroads of influences from Africa and Europe, as in the studio photographs of Malick Sidibé. Her wardrobe is rich in bright colors: cactus and kiwi greens, hibiscus pink, banana yellow, papaya orange and cacao light brown. All associated in a scorching tropical print. Fabrics get mixed in a happy interbreeding: zigzag jacquard, Prince of Wales linen, and raffia tweed, with straw and cotton gazar. Loops jewels and opaque mask-sunglasses are the key accessories, and the Banana sandals created in collaboration with Ancient Greek Sandals, THE shoes of the season. Resort collection 2014 by Guillaume Henry.
