STLFW Designer Spotlight: Samantha Pleet
Brooklyn-based designer Samantha Pleet is nothing short of a creative girl’s dream. Her namesake collection, which debuted in 2006, intertwines elements of the mysterious and fantastical with a sense of modernity. Pleet’s line is a whimsical story of flirty dresses, tailored jackets, pants and some shoes to boot. Made in New York City, her collection is made using organic materials whenever possible and it’s no surprise the designer has caught the attention of musicians like Beach House, The Dirty Projectors and Au Revoir Simone.
Her line can be found nationally in Anthropologie and Saks Fifth Avenue as well as specialty boutiques across the coasts. She recently collaborated with Urban Outfitters on Rapscallion by Samantha Pleet, which led to curating the inaugural pop-up shop at space 15 Twenty in Los Angeles. Pleet has also collaborated with good friend and writer Eviana Hartman on Bodkin, an organic line consisting of straightforward modern pieces like zippered t-shirt rompers and expertly-tailored tank tops.
This Oct. 3, Samantha Pleet will show her latest collection on the runway at Saint Louis Fashion Week’s Industry Night. For a chance to rub elbows with the designer and get a first-hand look at her collection, get your tickets now. We have a feeling these won’t be around for very long.
