pendleton, the portland collection


I’ve had this post in the wings for months waiting for the time when I could share this amazing collection from Pendleton with you, The Portland Collection.  I’ve been SO excited about it and I’m absolutely thrilled to share these photos with you today.

The Portland Collection is a new ready-to-wear line inspired by Pendleton’s rich archive of Native American-inspired textiles and blankets.  some of my favorite Portland designers, Rachel Turk and Nathaniel Crissman from Church & State and John Blasioli teamed up to create this amazing collection and I am beyond speechless with the outcome.  the design is so true of their styles, yet blends flawlessly with Pendleton’s archival heritage.  the collection includes dresses with brass buttons, reversible outerwear, graphic sweaters, wool shirts, accessories, blankets and more and is set to hit boutiques this fall.  to stay informed on availability and purchasing info, follow The Portland Collection blog.

    really glad to see Portland companies utilizing Potland designers! We are so rich with artistic people here – so lucky – I’m glad they realize that. The pieces are beautiful.

    killer! I have been slightly obsessed with Pendleton’s native american blankets lately, and have really been wanting to get a hold of some fabric. Seeing this collection is a huge inspiration.
