Still Ill
For her new collection, Olympia le Tan was inspired by the fields of health and medicine, with romance novels written by slightly crazy authors that tell stories of love between doctors and nurses! Starting now you can get well with “Wiagra,” “Brozac” …

This summer Guillaume Henry adds a new chapter to Carven‘s history by creating his first men’s collection. A full line, it consists of essentials revisited with elegance and a fresh twist. We find the Carven codes: Parisian feel, attention to detail, volume play, contrasts and and references to the Paris of Brassaï and Doisneau. He also delves into the archives of the house and republishes the legendary model of round glasses with clips inspired at the time by those of John Lennon. For colette, he offers a customized version in colette blue in limited edition.
