Samantha and Patrick Pleet have something of a penchant for cinema, so this season they left all runways to the wayside and made a short film for their Spring '09 collection. The couple gave us a wee peek behind the scenes of their fashion movie in Brooklyn a couple of weeks ago, and we even spotted Chris Bear of Grizzly Bear on set, playing model and looking casually spiffy in next season Patrick Pleet outfits. The awesome all-white set was designed by Patrick himself and actually reminded us a little of cult '60s French movie L'année dernière à Marienbad. We caught up with Mr and Mrs Pleet at their swanky new loft in Greenpoint to get the scoop on the new collection and the video they created with director Tom Hines (smashing bowls in suits, puppeteering in geometric rompers, etc) which premieres on Youtube today, and Pleet Street Journal later this month.
