Spring/Summer 2015 Collection
Inspired by the world of racing, especially Formula 1, in his latest at final runway show for Carven, William Henry brings us a collection full of energy. A new line of bags, the Pelham is worn below the elbow for an easy look. Black with white stripes are accented with yellow or blue suede and python, this bag wins hands down! Accents come from a space-time elsewhere and come to life in this collection. We appreciate the Japanese-inspired style of the Edo print that is very 60's in its cut. The gingham print is also worked in black and white plaid for both mini and maxis, enhanced by tones of floral print. The Malher line is offered in a fringed format for taking on summer’s biggest trend.
