Carven Eyewear

Carven, founded in 1945 by Carmen de Tommaso, is a world-renowned high-end fashion brand. Madame Carmen was told - because she was only 1.55 meters tall - by her mother that she could never be elegant. That prompted her to start her own haute couture line for smaller ladies.

L’histoire de la Marque Carven

The brand founded in 1945 by Carmen de Tommaso, is a world-renowned high-end fashion brand.
Madame Carmen was told – because she was only 1.55 meters tall – by her mother that she could never be elegant. That prompted her to start her own haute couture line for smaller ladies.

A great success. Anno 2016, the fashion house is a highly appreciated household name with its own clothing, bags and perfume line. And as of 2016, also with a modern-chic eyewear label: Carven Eyewear.
