I think by now everyone is more than tired of winter – that’s what made me think of David Szeto. The Canadian designer who has happily held an outsider status over the years, chose Brussels over Paris as his base leaving him feeling quite disconnected. “It [Brussels] reminds me of growing up in Vancouver, when I used to daydream about big cities like New York. In a way, being on the periphery makes me more creative.”
His creations are beautiful hand draped silk dresses, tops and jackets along with some gorgeous silk scarves. His spring summer 2013 collection is not yet in, but the pieces currently available through his online platform are timeless classics which will work equally well as part of your business and off duty wardrobe. And they definitely make you feel that summer is that much closer x
Here are some of my favourite pieces, for the full range go to the David Szeto website.
