Fall Prints: David Peck Collection

Earlier in the year I interviewed David Peck for Lookbooks about his CrOp collection. Standing for ‘creative opportunities’, CrOp is produced in Houston, Texas with a focus on sustainability and social responsibility. David uses low impact printing methods and organic, fair trade and natural fibers for designs that feature his signature bold prints and vibrant hues.

The inspiration behind fall 2012 began with a visit to NYC’s Tenement Museum, which got David thinking about his own rich family history: connections, travel, memories, evolution and change.  Peck used each of the themes for the prints in the collection to tell a story: harbor, lace, autumn leaves and geography.  For information and the ideas behind each theme click on the image below:

This Estelle dress in navy/geography print is one of my favourites from Peck’s current line.  The abstract print reminiscent of clouds, land and sea from above was inspired by David’s travels over the sea to and from Paris.  I love the length of the dress and the centre stripe that draws you in – it is a delight to wear.

You can view the whole collection on Peck’s website – I will be featuring another of Davids designs, along with photos of my other fall favourites over the next few weeks.

Each season David Peck partners with a charity to promote and bring awareness of their cause.  For fall / winter 12 Peck is working with Covenant House in Texas, an organization offering shelter and services to homeless and at risk youth under the age of 21.  You can read more about David’s work with Covenant House here.

  1. Sarah – very pretty. A grand combination between conservative and liberal! Love! I feel this is the perfect dress for the current political spirit of the country! By the way, how do you feel about the current state of politics? You are not a citizen, right? So you cannot vote? But if you were, for whom would you be voting? I am so curious and will not be offended if you keep politics off of this blog! But I love to learn things about my fellow smart fashion girls! Have a nice day! 😀

    Wow, what a gorgeous dress and even more amazing that it’s sustainable dyeing!

  4. Such a lovely dress – I love how the solid block of color down the front not only breaks up the print, but also elongates (as if you needed the help) the silhouette. These pictures of you are just stunning 🙂

  5. What a gorgeous dress and what a wonderfully socially conscious designer behind this great line. Yet again, thanks for turning me on to another fabulous designer!

    When I first saw the preview of this post on instagram, I have to admit that I thought this dress was from the current Carven collection and I was obscenely jealous… but now that I see it in full, I think I love it even more than the similarly printed piece from Carven. The fitted but not skintight cut and beautiful swatch of navy down the middle are such wonderful details. I can’t wait to investigate David Peck myself, it looks like he is another gem 🙂

    This dress is just so amazing in so many different levels! And you couldn’t have chosen a better location for shooting these photos, I just love the contrast.

  8. absolutely fabulous dress! you always find the best dresses!

  9. It’s really interesting seeing you in this Sarah. Whilst the simple cut of this shift is very loyal to your crisp, simple style you have managed to move your look on with the introduction of vibrant and futuristic print. I can visibly see your style evolution through this blog. I also want to say how well you carry that colour, many of your outfits are monochrome so it’s cool to see you injecting some new hues into your look. Great blogging as per usual.


  10. Sarah – the dress is a very modern combination between elegance and edginess. Love the graffiti background as well. David Peck is definitely a name to watch.

  11. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L-L as always! I love where he got his inspiration to design! Very talented!! 🙂

    Lovely print, and it goes so well with the structure of the dress!

  13. This colour and structure really work for you. As always, you look gorgeous!
