As of 2014, we are no longer producing The Portland Collection. This was a wonderful run, and Pendleton wishes our gifted designers well as they move on with their own projects. You can read about John Blasioli here and here. Catch up with Nathaniel Crissman and Rachel Turk here, as they continue their brand, Church & State.
If you have not been to the exhibit, we highly urge you to go. It’s an interesting take on fashion vs. the garment or craft. Clothing is defined as the objects produced—the physical garments, whereas fashion is viewed as “the cultural zeitgeist that fashion embodies: an ever-changing identity for the current moment.”
The Portland Collection designer, Nathaniel Crissman, snapped a photo of some past work being featured at the MOCC.
It’s a source of pride to show these garments as exhibits.
Harper’s Bazaar’s Executive Editor, Laura Brown looks stunning in TPC. Read the article on Zady, for Laura’s journey through fashion and how she made a career of it.
Ever wonder where we coined the idea for the LOBO sweatshirt? Well here it is, taken straight out of our archives, and right onto the most comfortable sweatshirt you will ever own. It’s only fitting that TPC would produce an image that represents a wolf. The wolf or LOBO, is for the man who is not afraid to stray from the pack. The lone wolf, the independent. HE is in a league all of his own. To be honest, I bet we could all use a bit of LOBO in us. I like it…So I’m going to run with it.
“The look of the man who is a front runner. Run with it.”
Enjoy our vintage adds. I know I did!
