Pendleton - The Portland Collection

Wow. I am crushing hard on The Portland Collection by Pendleton. I stumbled upon this new line on the Anthropologie site and was immediately intrigued. Pendleton is an American classic but with the exception of the occasional vintage piece (The Dude's Cowichan, for example) I've never been a big fan.

The Portland Collection is spendy but the pieces are timeless. Pendleton is known for quality craftsmanship and each of these classic pieces will get years of use in the right closet. The spirit of independent design is prevalent in this line but the look is still very Pendleton. Native American inspired pieces are hot right now and Pendleton has a rich history of perfecting the style. The über hip ad campaign is flawlessly executed (and a reminder that you should never underestimate the power of lifestyle branding). My favorite piece is the Penobscot Poncho. It has definitely made it to the top of my winter wishlist.
