PARIS, France — At Carven's miniature spectacle, creative director Barnabé Hardy opted for Parisian experimental dance troupe I Could Never Be A Dancer rather than models to showcase the clothes in a camp, high-energy routine choreographed around a central install of stretchy floor-to-ceiling textile bands.

Whilst Guillaume Henry's Carven boy of season's past harboured a sort of austere, whimsical allure, Hardy proffered glittery silver socks under pastel seersucker suits, playful segmented knits, and poppy neon jackets in crushed nylon, for a decidedly more boisterous and collegiate aesthetic for next Spring. Those neons paid testament to that fact, with roomy parka shapes and slim blousons (layered for a harmonious tech/tailoring mash-up) that felt relevant to today's urban sportswear fixation — as did the crossbody satchels and a kooky boat shoe cum athletic trainer.
