Behind the Scenes at Outdoor Retailer

Outdoor Retailer (OR) is a four day trade show in the outdoor industry for brands who make products for those who love to enjoy the outdoors. At the event, brands get to show off their new products and network with like-minded industry partners. You’ll see everything there from socks to backpacks, avalanche beacons to beef jerky, and down jackets to jewelry. There is something at OR for everyone who wants to express their outdoor self. This show we debuted our Fall line for 2015 which includes beautiful sweaters, dresses, tees and tunics. Our clothing designer, Heather, took over our Twitter account last Thursday at the show to give our fans an insider’s view at what really goes on:

She started her day with an educational event at Pantone, talking global color trends:

Our comfy, cozy knits often use organic and sustainable materials, making you feel that much better about wearing them. While at the show, we are able to show the variety of colors we provide in these materials, like the Capella LS Tee shown here:
