Today’s Carven show was built for speed. You might even say it was built from speed: As Guillaume Henry explained, his key reference this season was racing, taking in everything from Formula 1 team uniforms to the blurred stripe of a brightly colored car taking a curve at a couple hundred miles per hour. To which the reply had to be, “Sure, yeah, but maybe the 1960s were kind of a thing, too. And what about Japan?” It wasn’t like Henry was trying to be sly—alongside all the racing motifs, the mod silhouettes and Edo-style illustration prints were front and center here. As were the big ol’ bags many of the models cuddled under their arms, a little distractingly, like helmets.
