Last Fall's team-up of John Bartlett and Rogues Gallery designer Alex Carleton was such a sellout that a sequel was to be fully expected, and we are looking forward to next week's launch to see in person what the latest fruits of this collaboration will be.
From the looks of the preview pics we got yesterday, the new line will have a clever Greek, Roman and Egyptian antiquity theme featuring vintage t-shirts and tanks along with beach ready canvas totes and other accessories.
Carleton has recently reined in the Rogues Gallery business to regain control and consolidate production in Maine as well as to allow attention for his other job as creative director for the L.L.Bean Signature collection. Thankfully, he has managed to make time to keep the capsule collection with Bartlett going, which should keep the growing customer base at the designer's West Village boutique very happy indeed.
