Last night, I attended LL Bean Signature's Trunk Show for Fall 2010 in Portland, Maine and I was highly impressed with the assorted mixture of colors and materials that will be rolling out in the next month. As the crowd gathered in Bang Cut & Color on Congress Street to get an exclusive look at the new selections, I basked in the glow of meeting a handful of great people behind the brand such as, Laurie Brooks and Michele Parzianello to name a few. Fall is what LL Bean does best and Alex Carleton definitely delivered with this season's collection.
As you look at the pictures, I think you will find that the design team did a great job of drawing inspiration from LL Bean's deep history and extensive archives. My only disappointment was that the Saddle Shoes, which are an exact replica of the classic shoes that first appeared in LL Bean's 1940 catalog, were not available for review at the trunk show. Overall, the show was great and here are few of my favorite things.
