One-time classic French couture house Carven has undergone a “re-imagining”  by one-time Givenchy designer Guillaume Henry and that new imagining involves being your one-stop shop for louche, boyish downtown cool.

Since I’d wager the phrase “louche, boyish downtown cool” is like a dog whistle to Alexa Chung, here she is showing up to the launch of the collection at Barney’s.

Anyway. She is really pretty and could get away with a lot. And I like her shoes. And I like black and white.

What do you say?
