obsession : carven

My friend Elyse brought my attention to this line - having started in 1945, it is amazing I've never noticed it before.  Inspired by Switzerland for the resort 2012 collection, the pieces feature photo and map prints that I can't get enough of (and this seems to be their "thing" - these details show up in past collections as well).

 From their latest campaign, at

 Resort 2012 collection

 Fall 2011 collection

 Spring 2011 collection

The signature is lovely - unusual cuts on jackets, shades of navy and orange with khaki, photo-realistic printing, lace applique, triangular midriff cut-outs.  Beautiful tailoring.
