I briefly met David Peck during New York Fashion Week while we were waiting for the WHIT show to start. (Review on the way, I promise!) A few days later, the amazing look book for CrOp by David Peck fall 2012 landed in my email inbox, and I was smitten! The colors are so rich and the cuts and fabric combinations are wonderful. I really enjoyed the original prints! My favorite pieces by far were the gorgeous, whimsical evening gowns. I remember seeing the collection for the first time and I just kept saying "oh my goodness... amazing..." I love his silhouettes and use color blocking. Take a look for yourself!
The original prints featured in the collection were inspired by autumn leaves, geography, harbors and lace. CrOp isn't only gorgeous, but it's a line committed to giving back. A portion of sales from each collection are donated to the inspiration associated with that season. They also manufacture in the US! I always have so much respect for brands where all operations are based in the US because it creates jobs and keeps things local. CrOp is still quite new (the line's first collection was spring 2011) but I'm already excited to see what they come up with each season. Also, be sure to follow their blog!
