Season's Round Up # 45: CARVEN SPRING-SUMMER 2013

Ever since they opened their first stand-alone store here in Singapore, I’ve been following Carven quite religiously and I must say I am liking and loving what I’m seeing thus far.

The Parisian fashion house is beginning to make waves in the fashion world and I think you all will see why. For SS2013, Guillaume Henry has crafted a collection that will catapult them into fashion world’s must have staples! We’ll see a lot of petite dresses embellished with the house’s trademark cut-out design, focusing this time around on the body’s clavicles in lieu of exposing midriffs and décolletage. I also adore the smart suits and jackets made out of tweed and felted wool. Oh! And I must say I am lusting after the buckled shoes and brogue-ish like pieces that came down the runway. A few of the other things I loved about the collection would be the expert interplay of color – brights and neutrals, patterns as well as the wide-spread use of collars to make seemingly plain outfits pop-up. I think this season has paved way for the label to go beyond its current cult following, and I say best be ready for Carven mania. It’s about to hit the streets of fashionopolis people and best be on your way before you get left behind!

TAKING A BREAK from the SHOWS

I took a short break from watching the SS2013 shows and to recuperate from a long week to dine at this newly opened restaurant here in Singapore. It's called & Made by Michelin star chef Bruno Menard. And yes I pigged out. Well, that's what happens when I'm stressed - I stuff myself with food! The burgers were ok, but the truffle fries and desserts were divine. What made the experience even more enticing was the company, so if you're looking for a good place to catch up with friends, this is definitely a place to go.

After late lunch, I went on to visit the newly opened Carven store here located in Ion Orchard. And I must say I fell in love. The pieces were amazing and I saw a lot of things that I would've worn to the shows had I been able to attend this year. There was this gorgeous faux fur round-neck sweater in a luscious turquoise color that is to die for! Retailing for SGD 390, it honestly is an amazing deal for something so fashionable. Now if only it weren't as hot as summer here in Singapore all year long. Maybe it's time to think up of a trip somewhere cold no? Anyway, I stopped myself from purchasing it, but I'm still in deep contemplation. What do you guys think? Yay or nay? Maybe I should just distract myself from buying this by reviewing the shows again no?
