Every interior designer I know owns at least one L.L. Bean Boat and Tote for carrying samples but I doubt too many of us own the clothing. All that looks like it's about to change! Alex Carleton who was a design consultant for the company in Maine years ago left to start his own line, Rogues Gallery, but has rejoined L.L. Bean to oversee their new Signature collection for men and women. The clothing looks chic enough to be worn on the streets of New York as well as the outdoors of Maine! The classic Boat and Tote also got a makeover. Too bad the line doesn't debut until March 2010! I could use a bag!
