Guillaume Henry

The new rising star in French fashion, Guillaume Henry, who is reviving the Parisian house of Carven, will be making his first personal appearance in the United States next week — and it will be in San Francisco!

Vanessa Getty, with Barney’s New York’s Simon Doonan, are inviting local fashionistas to shop the Spring 2011 Carven collection and meet the handsome designer on Friday, February 4th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm (on the 3rd floor.) The Peninsula Humane Society will receive 10% of the proceeds from Carven sales.

This is a rare window of opportunity to meet Doonan and Henry, as they’re off the next day to Barney’s in Beverly Hills for another special appearance (in LA, Demi Moore wore Carven to the recent premier of “No Strings Attached”)… but not as special as ours as we’re first!

Trunk Show: 12:00 PM – 6:00 PM
Personal Appearance: 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Location: Barney’s New York, 77 O’Farrell Street, 3rd Floor, San Francisco

Sold in the United States at Barney’s New York, San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Seattle and Chicago, the Carven collection, in the short period that Guillaume Henry has been designing it, has become respected for perfecting the art of wearable luxury, of casual elegance. As with Lanvin, Rochas and Balmain, it evokes a more refined era, yet is totally of the moment and really the chicest thing going.

See you all at Barney’s!
