SEATTLE — October 4, 2018 — Tommy Bahama and Pendleton Woolen Mills have joined forces on a new collaboration that celebrates these two iconic lifestyle brands’ love of the great outdoors and commitment to quality and style. This comes to life in the Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collection of men’s and women’s apparel, accessories, and home products. Tommy Bahama, based in Seattle, and Pendleton®, based in Portland, Ore., share a Pacific Northwest sensibility and a unique appreciation of the outdoor lifestyle and love of the beach and the surf.
The Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collection launches on October 4th at select Tommy Bahama stores, tommybahama.com, select Pendleton retail store locations and Pendleton-usa.com.
“For 25 years, Tommy Bahama’s mission has been to Live the Island Life,” said Bradley O’Brien, executive vice president of Product Design for Tommy Bahama. “To celebrate this milestone, we have partnered with Pendleton Woolen Mills on this unique collaboration. Warm, stylish, relaxed and approachable are the essential elements, which dovetail our two brands. It is a true celebration of the simple pleasures of living the good life on the beach, in the mountains or in your own backyard.”
Bob Christnacht, executive vice president of Sales and Marketing for Pendleton said: “Pendleton is pleased to partner with Tommy Bahama, bringing to our consumers a distinctively different look, with a completely compatible collision of tropical florals and western jacquard patterns. The result, dramatic and creative fashions that reflect our similar roots and commitment to quality.”
Combining their boundless dedication to open-air living, Tommy Bahama & Pendleton features the signature level of comfort, style and quality that Tommy Bahama and Pendleton guests have come to expect. The brands’ shared sensibilities and authentic values are exemplified in two, new collaborative fabric patterns: the Aloha Harding Print unites Pendleton’s Harding design with overlaid tropical florals and the Island Serape Stripe features a tropical leaf pattern jacquard with Pendleton’s classic blanket stripe. These fabric patterns are used in a men’s vest, cardigan, camp shirt and swim trunk and in a women’s serape poncho, dress, blouse, swim and activewear along with blankets, coffee mugs and more. Adding to the special nature of the Tommy Bahama & Pendleton collaboration, fabrics and blankets are made exclusively in Pendleton’s own Pacific Northwest mills for this collection.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Tommy Bahama, the iconic island lifestyle brand that defines relaxed, sophisticated style in men’s and women’s sportswear, swimwear, accessories, footwear and a complete home furnishing collection. A successful retailer and pioneer in the concept of combined restaurant and retail sites, Tommy Bahama locations allow guests to fully experience its hospitality and the brand anthem… Long Live the Island Life. Tommy Bahama has over 160 Tommy Bahama retail locations worldwide, 18 of which offer a Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar.
