Band of Outsiders Fall 2011 Show
This brand Band of Outsiders has been getting a lot of recognition and was sure a line people were waiting to see during NYC Fashion Week. Celebrities like Kristen Dunst, Kanye West, Michelle Williams and Jason Schwartzman are already rocking the clothes. Designer Scott Sternberg calls his piece a mixture of the modern and the preppy with other various influences of American culture thrown in. Fall 2011 doesn’t deviate too much from what Band of Outisders is all about, but instead shifts the line a bit to a more ski influenced collection.
Scott Sternberg launched Band of Outsiders in 2004, designing recontextualized vintage-inspired looks with hand-sewn seams and shrunken proportions. The brand’s overall look is one of sharply cut dress shirts and slim-fitting, tailored suits and knits with a boyish appeal. Though increasingly popular in the States, the label’s biggest market is Tokyo. Former Fashion File host Tim Blanks notes of Sternberg: “He’s a little like Junya Watanabe, able to train a detached eye on the familiar and find the exotic in the mundane.”
