Pendleton, Meet Opening Ceremony

Is anyone else sick of the usual cashmere wool blend toggle coats in boring grey and black? How about the plethora of Canada Goose coats out there? I know they’re super warm and cozy, but really, do we all have to look the same?

Shake off your winter blahs this year by making a true statement with a coat from Opening Ceremony. They’ve teamed up with Pendleton, an Oregon based woolen mill that’s been around since 1909 producing Native American inspired 100% pure virgin wool clothing for men and women as well as beautiful blankets and home products featuring the ancient designs.

The line is appropriately named Pendleton Meets Opening Ceremony and features some of the famous Yavapai, Navajo, and Standing Rock patterns.  I love the way Opening Ceremony took the classic Pendleton patterns and mixed them with their own signature cuts and styles. The Motocross Jacket  for example, juxtaposes the emblems of America (above $500.00 US), while the Tight Peplum Coat flatters the feminine frame with a frilly bottom (below left, $675.00 US). They even designed a Classic Flare Coat which is perfect for fall with its high collar and cropped sleeves (below middle, $500.00 US).

Rock any one of these gorgeous coats with this delicious, not to mention affordable Optimum Fridge Bag from Nasty Gal (only $58.00 US).
