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.
Inspired by L.L.Bean's 1927 Cruiser Boot, one of the original variations of the Maine Hunting Shoe. We've given it a premium upgrade in rich, rugged bison leather that came from a tannery in Maine. Each pair is expertly crafted in Brunswick, Maine.
"I was quite interested in getting the right kind of footwear for deer hunting," wrote L.L. Bean in his autobiography about what led him to invent this new field boot with a rubber vamp and sole that would keep feet dry. Nearly a century after he patented his classic, we've given it a premium upgrade in rich, rugged bison leather. The leather came from a tannery in Maine, and each pair is expertly crafted at the Bean boot factory in Brunswick, Maine.
