Just about everyone seems to be partnering on collections these days but the latest one coming right out of France is one that I can jump on board with. Two of my favourite French brands, Carven and Petit Bateau, have confirmed that they're about to launch a limited edition capsule collection.
And it sounds promising. So far, only two images of the nine piece line have been released and as you would expect, the pieces are incredibly chic and incredibly French. Prices are accessible and range between $64 to $320 and the line caters for men, women and children just to make sure that the whole family can get in on the action. 'Our collaborations up until now [with the likes of French brands like Robert Clergerie, Zespa, L’Amyand] were often associated with a collection and a specific narrative, but the line we have developed together with Petit Bateau goes far beyond that,' Carven creative director Guillaume Henry told WWD. 'It’s no longer a story linked to a collection; it’s a story of shared values.'
The line will debut on November 5. at Colette in Paris and 10 Corso Como in Milan and will then be available in as yet unnamed boutiques in London and Brussels before arriving in the US on December 5.
