LANDS’ END CANVAS SPRING/SUMMER 2012 PREVIEW PARTY

I was unable to attend the Spring/Summer 2012 preview party thrown by Lands’ End Canvas a few months back, but just caught this video and I am very excited about what they showed and what I can assume to be live on the site/in-store in the next few weeks.  (Yes, I know it still ‘winter’, but Feb is ‘spring’ in the retail world)  Easy, casual pieces, infused with color and just the right amount of style, are what LEC is standing for this season.  Collection looks great and I have already picked out a few must have pieces for myself.  Great job guys!

CONTEXT: ART & INTERIORS

The gentleman at Context have expanded their offering to include a collection of select interior and art pieces.  Having teamed up with local vintage and antique dealers from Wisconsin, the collection is a great representation of the Midwest.  Sam, Ryan and Ben used the same, unique edit point they have with their apparel collections on curating these pieces.  Each item has a story behind it and knowing the guys at Context, you would hear no complaints asking for them to tell those stories over a cold Spotted Cow or Old Fashioned, it’s their passion.

REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE

56 years ago today, Rebel Without a Cause, was release by Warner Brothers.  It was screen and style icon James Dean’s most famous role as Jim Stark, 17 year old high school student, that made the film.

Deemed ‘culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant’, Rebel was added and preserved in the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1990.  James was never able to enjoy the success and fame this film was to bring him, as he died September 30, 1995, less than a month before its release.
