Samantha Pleet says: The Autumn Winter 2011 collection was inspired by mythology, astronomy, and my recent trip through Iceland. The clothes capture the enchantment I experienced at wonders along the Ring Road with it’s frozen waterfalls, geysers, and northern lights. I worked closely with an embroiderer back in NYC to bring the imagery inspired by my trip to some of the pieces. A starry night sky appears on shorts, the cycle of Venus on the collar of a dress, and reflected moons glowing on the lapels of a blazer. The regal color palette comes in classic, luxurious fabrics like velvet, English tweed, and washed silk that is discreetly embellished with tassels and iridescent star buttons. The clothes bring a sense of enchantment to everyday life, from work to a party, or while exploring dramatic landscapes and telling tales by the fire.
