Known for his characteristic collaborations with American heritage brands, Todd Snyder continues to share the unique tales of the brands that helped build a nation. This time, the Iowa-born, NYC designer, puts a spotlight on the legendary outdoors brand, L.L.Bean. Surely a staple for many, especially in the Northeast quadrant of the United States, L.L.Bean’s history is retold with the man behind the label, Leon Leonwood Bean, at the forefront of the collection. An outdoorsman and outfitter, Bean was a tour guide of sorts, known for showing out-of-towners the beauty of the Maine landscape, while simultaneously making sure they dressed the part well enough to survive the elements.
Diving into the L.L.Bean archives, Snyder reverently revisits and revives Bean staples, giving them a modern day update through the careful curation of historian’s eyes. Turning once specialized apparel into universal sportswear for the everyday outdoors appreciator, Snyder provides subtle flair and understated accents to traditional pieces from L.L.Bean’s storied history. The aptly-titled “From Away Collection” taken from the old Mainard adage ““You are either a Maine-Ah (from Maine) or From Away (not from Maine),” is at once an exciting voyage into the future and a respectful look back at the unrivaled roots of an iconic American label.
Available October 30, this limited-edition curated collection includes over 50 styles that shine with the combination of new accents and a retro feel. From signature flannel and sherpa to true classics like the chamois shirt and Bean Boots, Todd Snyder’s collection revives rare colorways and vintage labels to bring you an updated look at a timeless outdoor tradition.
Todd, a longtime L.L.Bean collector and fan, chose some of the most iconic pieces from the L.L.Bean archives, then reinvented them with a modern sensibility, premium materials and a tailored fit.
The classic old-school hoodie, celebrating the L.L.Bean script logo originally inspired by the founder's signature - and used as the company logo for nearly six decades.
