Words cannot express my excitement for the March launch of L.L. Bean’s Signature Collection. I have grown up surrounded by plaid flannels and of course too many pairs of bean boots to count. As a kid I was thrilled at the thought of driving up to Freeport to explore the indoor trout ponds in the flagship store, rock climb in the old kids store and of course shop! As I grew up I found that it became harder and harder to find clothing that I could incorporate into my wardrobe. I wanted so badly to make it work, but the cuts were off so instead I spent time playing with the seas of jackets, winter accessories and shoe department. Alex Carleton’s redesign of the L.L. Bean classics is a brilliant way of reaching out to a whole new audience. L.L. Bean the brand and lifestyle is classic foremost and now more than ever is balance of fashion too. Below is a sneak peak of the collection from http://www.llbeansignature.com
what a beautiful view!
