Paris: For S/S 14, Carven showed a collection oozing an artisanal spirit of Post-Impressionist brushstroke prints, abstract intarsia knits, washed-out hues and earthy materials. However, contemporary charm prevailed with pops of safety orange or chartreuse, bomber and town coat hybrids, and sharp silhouettes. —Kathleen Tso
