Spending the better part of my childhood in New Mexico, I became very familiar with the Pendleton name. My family collected the robes (blankets), and you could find one draped over almost every chair, bed, and couch in our house. Pendleton announced their designer facet in 2011 (Pendleton Portland Collection), and began collaborations with companies such as Nike, Vans, Opening Ceremony, and Comme des Garçons just to name a few. I couldnt wait to get my hands on some wearable Pendleton patterned goodness, and started with a beautiful gray and black pencil skirt. Last year’s simple monochromatic pieces kept me coming back for more, and this season is no different. Top two items on my list are the canyonville tote, and chiloquin leggings.
