David Szeto Spring/Summer 2013 and Autumn/Winter 2012

Ah, continue to design beautiful, timeless pieces that are so wearable and covetable!

Spring/Summer 2013

Szeto's recent Spring/Summer 2013 collection titled 'Massai Irma la Douce'
boasts some absolutely glorious colours and beautiful shapes:

The Samantha dress in beautiful tangerine is sitting patiently in my wishlist at Shopbop and Farfetch (I prefer the latter version, which isn't one-shouldered, as it'd be more practical/easy-to-wear in the end). How gorgeous is that cocoon-shaped electric blue coat?  I must admit I was uber excited (yet equally surprised) that David Szeto was recently stocked at Shopbop, it wasn't quite the store I had pictured this designer to be stocked, although I am not complaining, I must say that I don't think Shopbop pictures of the clothing do it justice though...
 David's Szeto trademark pleating takes centrestage in this nude beautiful!
The Tribal Manteau again - electric blue mesh neoprene coat, lined in silk - absolutely beautiful, although I would probably look silly in it.
An example of how different a piece can look in a different colour, this 'Standard dress' in dark chocolate looks so different to the 'nude' above, but oh so striking!
I am seriously considering the tangerine version of the Jordana skirt on Shopbop, the shape is so beautiful and wearable! Wouldn't mind tracking that Jacks top too! Love the subtle draping and easy shape, and especially the hand rouching on the sleeves...
I like the bird print on the Shirley dress (available at Farfetch), but even more so on this (easier-to-wear) 'Samantha' version available at Barneys.

Autumn/Winter 2012

Collection: coco barbès

Mixing identity through dressing, David Szeto reinterpretated classic Chanel suiting, chains, pearl black/white and gold trimmings through the eyes of Afro-Parisian women with ‘ikat’ checkers and leopard prints on silk twills, draped into dresses and tops, occasionaly trimmed with chunky chains and buckles in a beautiful colour palette that includes deep purples, emerald greens, midnight blue, greys, red and black with white.

Apparently these 'Easy top(s)' (its actual name) can be tied in a variety of ways, with a bow front blouse in silk matt twill, here made up in an 'ikat' black white and red checkered digital print, the chequered digital prints are my favourite.
This Romy green ruched dress reminds me a little of the green David Szeto dress I have and wear a lot...except more subtle with the ruching, which makes it even 'easier' to wear..Here it is in navy:
Gabrielle Jacket - Chenille tweed jacket with silver chain sewn at the hem for that extra something.
N°5 Top Black/Off-White - Jersey top in black and white, completely hand ruched topped with a velvet bow at the top of the collar. I like the dress version available at Barneys.
Quite possibly my favourite piece of the collection, the 'Valentine' dress
