Ferreting out Pendleton's 2012 The Portland Collection

Posted by Marjorie Skinner on Tue, Jan 17, 2012 at 11:59 AM

After the successful 2011 debut of Pendleton's The Portland Collection—wildly good press, serious customer demand, and a dollop of controversy that got everyone thinking about cultural appropriation in fashion (if you haven't already, read this excellent piece on the subject by Lisa Hix)—the company has reinvested in its line featuring Portland designers John Blasioli, Rachel Turk, and Nathaniel Crissman. The Fall 2012 collection is much larger, with more home items, and I hear, more color. The lookbook has not been released as of yet, and Pendleton's doing a good job of teasing the curious masses. The only photo that has been released:

Naturally, fashion bloggers are scrambling to get as many early peeks at it as possible—love it or hate it, it's going to be everywhere when the complete photos finally drop. See here and here for some additional visuals, and keep your eyes peeled for the pending official release.
