A little disclaimer. I’m a hoarder of Breton stripes so I love Petit Bateau. If I had more cash I would also be a hoarder of Carven- all of it. Lazer cut leather, AW12 tapestry print and the fast-becoming-iconic dresses with pointy collars (you know the ones). So when I saw this collaboration I actually let out an audible squeal of excitement.
The two quintessentially French brands have partnered to bring us the most amazingly useful capsule collection featuring lots of red, white, blue with grey and stripes, plus loads of collars. There is an intriguing bib-type clip-on collar too to Carven-up your basics. Needless to say that I’m obsessed with the lot and think I might be able to channel my inner Chung with the navy dress – maybe that’s going a little too far!
