Witches aren't always evil (hello Glinda), so we're not scared that we've been cast under a spell by the adorably witchy-chic Samantha Pleet fall '11 collection. The young Brooklyn-based designer has managed to enchant us once again with celestial prints, tassels and bows, a brew that's been mixed for a sweet, yet mysterious collection. Inspired by mythology, astronomy, armor, and a trip to Iceland, Pleet has woven in the details of her travels on the Ring Road among geysers and the northern lights. While we know hardly anything about stargazing in the city of a million lights, we can certainly appreciate the stellar collection of girlish dresses, bold patterned playsuits, and awesomely cloaked-out bottoms and outerwear. Think of Pleet's aesthetic as Alexa Chung-downtown-chic meets a modern-day-Sabrina the Teenage Witch (namely one who hangs out by the old haunted monastery in Greenpoint, which plays backdrop for the lookbook). So, go ahead and be charmed by her magical lookbook, shot by Andrew De Francesco, and maybe cast a spell of your own to win our giveaway.
