04/07/14 H&F Launches Carven Manila

A stiff launch would have peeved Madame Carven, a woman known for making her own fun as well as clothes characterized by such frolic. Inspired by the Parisian moxie inherent in Carven, Homme et Femme celebrated the opening of the label’s first Manila store last week in a manner both easygoing and elegant.

Guests passed through an entrance festooned with fabric roses in white and patterned monochrome. Within, the spread laid out by Chef Gaita Fores would have been perfect for a spring picnic by the Eiffel, where our Carven couple would nibble on ratatouille tartlets and sandwiches stuffed with tuna, capers, and lemon. The whimsy carried over to dainty cupcakes with curlicue-finished C’s and refreshing cucumber shrub cocktails by EDSA Beverage Design Group. Certainly, everything from the vases of gargantuan blooms to the scripted neon signage reflected the spirit and spontaneity of the Spring-Summer ’14 collection hung across the room. Certainly a proper welcome for a label that’s equal parts free, easy, and seriously stylish.

Carven is now open at the 1st level of the Shangri-La Plaza Mall’s East Wing
