MISS AMERICAN PIE: When L.L. Bean brought on Rogues Gallery designer, Alex Carleton, as Creative Director for their brand new L.L. Bean Signature collection, we expected nothing less than contemporary Americana greatness. While some teaser products that had been released on a limited quantity only basis sparked our interest, it's not until the official online launch yesterday morning did we really start making our wishlists. We particularly love the Mariner Leather Purse ($155), a crossbody saddle bag with thick boat rope handles and shiny gold clasp and feet.
