I recently had a chance to catch up with NY designer Samantha Pleet, to see what's she's up to since her involvement with Space15Twenty back in November. And to my delight she's been up to a few things that are to my liking and anticipation. Things like a menswear line with husband Patrick Pleet, and her happy separation with Bodkin partner Eviana, to focus fully on her own Samantha Pleet Fall 09 collection.But then, this did not come as a surprise as I learned a little of her history, and found out that her grandmother was "the most stylish woman" she knew, and that her sculptor grandfather played the mandolin! Should we expect anything less from a lady who likes to treasure hunt? Read on to learn more about this designer who's gathered a cult following after her.
