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
