New York Fashion Week.- If being stylish is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Go ahead, call me a rapscallion; appropriately named after Samantha Pleet’s fiercely stylish Autumn/Winter collection. The quirky, Brooklyn designer, debuted her latest line to a packed Soho gallery decked out in model mugshots and a lineup’s backdrop providing the perfect setting for pieces such as Pleet’s Bandit Jacket, Hellion Dress, and Mischief Romper.


This break through (or should we say “break out”) ready-to-wear collection of Pleet’s featured masculine designs with feminine touches; high waist lines, nipped vests, and short hemlines are all reminders of the sinful female figure. The men’s collection was equally arresting with urban-hip pieces including wide collar dress shirts and slim suits.
No complaints from the fashion police on this one; unless it’s a crime to steal the spotlight from the tents.
