Alexa favourite Carven in High St collaboration

French fashion hook-up

It’s impeccably French, the clothes are beautifully conceived and made and, if we needed another reason to love Carven (which we don't – you couldn't find a bigger collection of Carven fans that the ELLE office), Alexa Chung is a great fan and regularly spotted in the brand. Not least in her most recent ELLE cover shoot – when we visited Carven designer Guillaume Henry's studio recently we spotted a picture from the shoot up on his wall.

So there was great excitement today at the excellent news that Carven is teaming up with another iconic French brand, Petit Bateau, known already as a one-stop-shop for simple Breton tops and perfect navy separates, for a High Street collaboration.

The capsule collection – that will consist of polo shirts, bodysuits, dresses, cardigans and separate collars – will be available from 4th December in all Petit Bateau stores.

If you haven’t started writing your Christmas list yet, this might be a good starting point.
