Canvas Lands' End, Apparel
It's February, but spring is in the air especially in Nashville, TN, where Canvas Lands' End recently photographed their spring collection. For 72 hours, the brand canvassed the vibrant town, making it the backdrop for their catalog shoot. Models showcased the collection as they shopped for records, ate food-truck tacos and shot pool at some of Nashville's best hangouts. The happening town, filled with great music, amazing eats and old-fashioned hospitality was the perfect pairing for the fresh, laid-back styles Canvas Lands' End will be offering this spring.
"The Canvas Lands' End collection was created in the spirit of taking to the open road. It's an optimistic approach to exploring new places or discovering the unexpected in well-traveled destinations," says J Henley Design Director for Lands' End. "We chose Nashville for our spring shoot because it captures that sense of adventure. The vibrant energy of the town was the perfect backdrop to highlight the modern pieces in our collection. They're versatile enough to take you from that first cup of morning coffee to a late night honky-tonk."
For music lovers, Canvas Lands' End recommends checking out the scene on Lower Broadway. Take in the tunes at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge or pick up some vinyl at Lawrence Records in the following styles:
