David Peck is one designer that may have officially won over my heart. Not only am I attracted to the fact that he is a male designer with exceptional taste, but the looks featured in his 2012 collection CrOp have me head-over-heels.
When I see the mute pastels combined with shades of primaries in just the right proportions, I can’t help but envision a look that exudes Cape Cod comfort mixed with that of Hampton edict and formality.
Somewhat preppy, CrOp is the definition of the new age country club classics like pencil skirts and pleats alongside collared button downs and cardigans to match. If you’re not a fan of more conservative looks, you won’t have the same love for this retro-inspired collection with modern structures and design. I personally would love to sip lemonade porch-side on a warm summer day in any one of David Peck’s tweed jumpers or high waited trouser suits. With a line skirts replicating that of a 50’s housewife and peplum sweetheart corsets, I obediently follow every phase of his look book, piece by piece.
Not only are the blouses structured to move and shift with your body, but the dresses from daywear to nighttime attire are draped and pleated to absolute perfection. The fluidity of this collection embodies everything that is modern day prep-ster.
I must admit, I’m a lover of a pressed polo and a nice pair of penny loafers, but David Peck’s CrOp collection is no in no comparison to what you’ve gown up in. You’ll be amazed at the clean-cut classics that CrOp has re-invented for Spring/Summer 2012
