The Portland Collection, Fall 2012

In Fall 2011, Pendleton Woolen Mills presented the Portland Collection, fashion and home items merging archival Pendleton patterns with the fresh designs of a group of up-and-coming Portland designers. The collection featured fabric woven at the Pendleton Northeast mills and all the pieces were produced in the USA. It was one of the first fashion collections that I was truly excited about and I snapped up two wool fringed scarves and a wool trench coat.

Their sophomore collection for this fall continues the trend of pairing the heritage prints with some edgy designs. Some of my favorites from their Fall 2012 lookbook:

Dolman overcoat, Warm Springs knit dress

Ram's Horn knit crew, Creased pants,
fringed scarf, Painted Hills Robe blanket
Yoke pocket shirt, high-waisted skirt
Owl cape, Montana tunic, La Pine leggings

Bishop coat, Pieced dress

Fringed scarves
