We need good news, don't we? So it's the perfect moment to announce that the talented duo from Carven are teaming up with La Redoute to give us a beautiful, feminine, playful, chic, oh-so-Parisian collection comes January.
The pieces designed by Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial are inspired by the air-hostess uniforms originally created by Madame Carven and will be executed in navy, black, cream, khahi with injection of prints and pastels - in other words, it will be a sort of classic femininity that will stand the test of time and good taste.
Being a huge fan and (very) long-term customer of La Redoute, I am positive that the pieces and the prices will give every girl an opportunity to add a little Carven to her wardrobe without breaking the bank because normally all La Redoute collabs come well under £200 mark - and that's for serious statements like jackets and coats.
Indeed, it's not the first time La Redoute did something this fabulous, though. Over the last years they worked with Gaultier, Azzaro, Courreges, Alexis Mabille. Jacquemus, Vanessa Bruno, BA&SH, Sezane, Coralie Marabelle, Etienne Dereux and Gat Rimon.
Now I am wondering if I should camp by my post box waiting for the copy of the catalogue whilst sipping endless cups of hot chocolate until the directory is finally slipped through the door in a middle of January (or a little earlier if I am that lucky)... And, again from my experience, if you sign up now, yours would be delivered on time, too.
I did a little check to make sure that La Redoute deliver to the States & Co. (and they do!), so if you want to open an account / order your copy of the Winter 2016 catalogue now, follow the links for La Redoute UK, La Redoute USA & Canada, La Redoute France, La Redoute Belgium and La Redoute International (the orders can be delivered pretty much anywhere as it happens).
And for now, a little teaser and a sneak peak of the collection - don't you think that black dress-meets-jacket number is absolutely irresistible?!
