I had the pleasure of checking out Samantha Pleet’s collection during fashion week in New York last Tuesday night. It was part of The Greenshows, and it was such a blast. I wrote up this Q & A with Pleet for BoingBoing.
My favorite piece was this high-waisted bathing suit. My husband is not in agreement on this point. Do all dudes hate high-waisted swim suits? I suspect it might be an aesthetic opinion along the same lines at harem pants and Uggs (although I also intensely dislike Uggs). But this particular high-waisted swimsuit is extra cool because the print was adapted from a manuscript that Pleet’s husband found called Hours of Catherine Cleves. Check out the rest of the line and a video made specially for Pleet’s Spring/Summer fall line at BoingBoing.
