Carven's statement slingbacks have struck just the right balance between grown up chic with their square toe and girly with that giant bow.
Bows have been spotted nestled in updos, and adorning the front of pumps for a while but the French label's take on them for SS12 is the top of the picks. The Zingy yellow suede couldn't shoo the dull clouds of January away any faster.
Founded by couturière Carmen De Tommaso, the house of Carven has been revived by Guillaume Henry. Henry worked for Givenchy and Paule Ka, and with his appointment at Carven in 2009 has moved the label into casual and elegant ready-to-wear.
