To this season’s medieval style, Guillaume Henry only kept a handful of paintings and rosettes.

The collection was more paired down than the last, stripped from the bags, accessories of all sorts, and neckpieces he usually revels in.

Instead, the young French designer redefined and reinforced the sweet, Parisienne femininity he has introduced to the house.

The show opened with tapestry-printed mini dresses, with curved, exaggerated hips – some with a simple white undershirt and a subtle slit at the back.

Candid references to the era were made throughout the collection, including high waisted skirts with Rosette cutouts or Bosch painting prints.

Notre-Dame stained glass-like blouses gave a new twist to Henry’s trademark school-girl shirts.

Yet the theme didn’t turn gimmicky either, and a few casual pieces marched down the runway, including slouchy knitted jumpers and beige shorts and jacket ensembles. This confirmed what Carven is: affordable ready-to-wear garments, for girls to live rather than pose in.
