WHAT TO WATCH FOR: LL BEAN FALL 13

 

L.L. Bean took over a vast loft space in New York this past week to showcase their Fall/Winter 2013 line-up of outdoor inspired clothing and accessories. It was a sweltering day, and refreshing to walk into a cold, alpine scented winter stage. As always, the highlights within the main L.L. Bean collection were the boots, bags and accessories. And the Signature line continues to be a stand out, with it’s more fitted silhouette and modern take on today’s sportsmen. The above hiking boots with double laces get special mention – an item every guy could use this fall. Here are some more highlights from the preview.

Staying on brand with rustic brick walls and wool floors. The main collection was featured up front, with Signature tucked nicely into the back:

Incredibly soft, plaid sport shirts.

Mittens are not only ok, they jump to the top of the winter wish list when made in rugged leather:

Heavy duty, yet lightweight boots updated with a thin stripe of bold color:

Your go-to fall jacket:

Favorite clothing item was this first rate vest from Signature in three colors:

Continuing with the camouflage trend in menswear, LL Bean showing they are on point. The camel option is a new color:

In addition to their popular tote bags, they’ve created a giant water proof duffel bag, great for ski trips, mountain excursions, etc.

The Signature advertising campaign shown in the space. Why they don’t adopt this clearly better imagery for the whole brand is up for debate.
