Pendleton: The Portland Collection

The new The Portland Collection for Pendleton by Portland designers Nathaniel Crissman, Rachel Turk and John Blasioli certainly brings a lot of excitement in me. I am going so crazy for their bags in particular. N

The Port­land col­lec­tion promises is a more fash­ion­ably pro­gres­sive line than their clas­sic pieces steeped in Amer­i­cana. The idea was to develop contemporary but still use the tra­di­tional Pendle­ton pat­terns as a launch­ing pad for the pieces tar­get­ing a younger more urban bridge mar­ket. Above is the first sketch released to the pub­lic of the col­lec­tion and we can’t wait to see what else is com­ing!

“Perennial pleated skirts, wool plaids and Western wear are the heart of Pendleton, but The Portland Collection will have a designer feel, an urba
n sensibility and a versatility factor.”–Mort Bishop, Pendleton Woolen Mills President
