Johnny Depp's squeeze and star of Heartbreaker Vanessa Paradis is a fan of French label Carven, as are style icons Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rihanna. We picked the French fashion house as one to watch in our August issue for its so-on-trend-it-hurts a/w camel collection.
Now the label, designed by ex-of-Givenchy Guillaume Henry, lands at cult London boutique The Shop at Bluebird – a fashion treasure trove on the King’s Road.
Originally created for petite women (couturier Madame de Tommaso was herself just 5ft 1in), the brand has expanded and, over the years, dressed everyone from ultra-chic Air France stewardesses to European royalty and big-screen stars.
We love this brown dress with its cute Peter Pan collar and the amazing selection of skater skirts. Visit The Shop at Bluebird for more info.
