254 Wolverine Store, Elizabeth Street, NYC

By the time we got there-during a busy NYFW---it was buzzing and packed with Pleet's friends and collaborators, gathered to celebrate a truly adorable collection of feminine frocks and separates-... inspired by a paradise lush Arcadia- and Darwin's journals recounting jaunts to exotic locales.
Pretty tropical prints and faded fabrics cut into somewhat loose silhouettes that flatter all body types---all really well done- nice easy pieces to dress up or down.

|Samantha Pleet - Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection ($215-$255)|
A week (just about) later-we returned to this retail bricks and mortar-the first Wolverine Wolverine (brand -not corporation) stand-alone store-to check out the carefully curated merchandise that was selected to sell-alongside the company's lifestyle shoe collections for men and women.
Thoughts---this will become a destination for hip and classic attire---with a solid American heritage stamp on everything. Including the store-pulled together super fast by Brooklyn Dry Goods folks-who also offer up their comfy tees here too. Other great brands hanging about-weather durable-iconic Filson jackets, Tanner Goods' belts-from Portland, Oregon, and selvage denim from SF's Tellason.
