Samantha Pleet’s FW 2010 collection was inspired by the films, characters, local musicians and her friends that the designer personally loves. The designer’s influences seem incredibly varied from school girl to 1950s pin-up to Jughead Jones and 1970s songstresses. Fortunately, they all came together in a very cohesive way thanks to her vision for clean lines, repetition of detail and a fairly neutral color palate. Paper bag waists were a prominent feature in pants as well as the very mini shorts and skirts. Sexy bra cup tops were balanced by easier pieces like boyfriend cardigans, capes and sporty jackets.
Samantha Pleet’s show was part of The Greenshows which produce fashion shows for committed to ecofriendly, ethically sound, fair-trade fashion designers. Wearable, adorable and eco-friendly too? A winning combination for this NYC based designer.
