Back To School With Carven Spring Summer 2012 Mens
Perhaps it's age catching up or the eternal pursuit of all things youthful and beautiful... Carven's SS2012 menswear have resonated with many new male fans, me included, with their debut menswear.
Guillaume Henry has done a nostalgic take on his version of the Carven man, something that is both charming and fresh, yet playful with a french attitude. These are clothes what your brother will wear or perhaps you would too if you have not 'outgrown' them physically. Cropped proportions, preppy blazers and slightly flared shorts in vibrant hues all make up the boyish appeal. One of the key accents in many looks were this very special leather pocket protectors that appeared on pockets of shirts and blazers, something little boys wear to shield their clothes from pen stains. But done in Carven's way, it creates a sartorial flair by way of colour and interesting styling... I love it!

Hence, I got mine today in a nice tan brown at Club 21 Mens, Four Seasons Hotel today. It was the only piece brought in... but you can order them at www.ssense.com or www.farfetch.com if keen.
Can't wait to put this on and get regressed to adolescence.
