Old Brands New Tricks

L.L.Bean is launching a new line called L.L.Bean Signature. Alex Carleton is the Creative Director for this edgier Bean brand. His is staying true to L.L.Bean's classic style just updating the design and fit. Maybe he will do what Jenna Lyons did for J.Crew? Right now there are a few pieces available online with the entire collection arriving in stores and online in March.




Lands' End recently launched Lands' End Canvas. They describe the line as "Effortless, lived-in style". The new apparel and accessories are still classic and timeless just refreshed.



It's wonderful to see L.L.Bean and Lands' End expanding their bands. I am very excited about both of these new updated lines.

Gaaah....that leather bag!! LOVE. I must investigate. Thanks for the head's up!

I am really glad to see these brands catch up to the future. They are such good quality, and reasonably priced, but I tend to stay away from them lately b/c so much of their stuff has seemed so dated.

I wore Tretorns throughout all of high school (and that was some 14 years ago). I'm so glad to see they're back again!!

I love that brown leather tote and the seersucker ruffle blouse is too cute. I miss my Tretorn’s that I had as a kid. It would be fun to have a pair of these cute canvas sneakers for the summer.
