The debut: Carven

Having earned a reputable name for himself by turning around the profile of dusty French couture house Carven, Guillaume Henry launches his first collection of men’s ready-to-wear for the label this season. This initial men’s collection was sold to 60 retailers around the world, firmly placing Henry on the ones-to-watch menswear radar.
