American heritage brands Lee and Pendleton court each other’s signature aesthetics with a new collaboration. The labels bring together each’s strengths and specialties with a capsule for fall-winter 2021. More specifically, the range features Lee’s quality denim with the comfort and style of Pendleton.
The laidback collection is representative of a new wave of inspirations and redefined clothing trademarks. Lee revisits its archives for the outing, reinterpreting original styles like the 101 Jean, Union-Alls, and Storm Rider jacket with Pendleton patterns. The legacy patterns feature new colors and American-made fabrics.
Pendleton’s fabrics join the capsule’s jeans, “crafted and sewn in Greensboro, North Carolina.” Pendleton executive vice president of merchandise and design, Peter Bishop, shares, “Working with Lee was a perfect pairing for Pendleton. Their authentic American heritage brand echoes Pendleton’s dedication to quality, design, and textile innovation.”
Lee vice president of global design, Betty Madden, adds, “Pendleton’s use of beautiful color and pattern has always been a source of inspiration. Working together is a dream come true.”
