Today, L.L. Bean launches their Signature Collection, designed by Alex Carleton. L.L. Bean has always had some strange power over me. Perhaps my New England childhood is to blame, but every time I pick up a catalog, I want to move to a small town in Maine, wear clogs every day, and shop at country stores. The spirit of Maine has been missing from their recent catalogs but I am glad to see it returning in the marketing for this new line. Better fits and classic colors are also welcomed with open arms!
