French fashion house Carven first emerged in 1945 under the direction of Madame Carmen de Tommaso. The brand aimed to create accessible, ready-to-wear clothing with a luxurious edge, which was personified by its iconic cotton dresses that quickly became the brand’s trademark items.

Today, Carven remains one of the most sought-after French clothing design houses in the world. With the skilled direction of Givenchy alums Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud as creative directors, Carven has developed an eclectic, playful vision with neatly tailored dresses, patterned jackets and menswear-inspired shirts.

Elizabeth Charles boasts an ever-changing lineup of the latest Carven designs. Discover hard-to-find pieces from Carven’s most recent offerings in this curated Carven collection.
