Well thanks to BOY by Band of Outsiders‘ Pre-Fall collection, that dream can be your reality (provided you have a fat wallet too, of course). Designer Scott Sternberg said he had Keaton in mind when designing the collection, which is chockfull of tomboy separates, and librarian-chic skirt suits and dresses. “I was re-watching Manhattan for like the 15th time,” he said. “And that way of dressing that you see in Diane Keaton’s character – corduroy suits, button ups, a certain type of plaid, a high neck, etc. – just seemed really fresh, or close to it…certainly in need of an update but the nice start of an idea about dressing for the fall.”
Sternberg was right on the money and the collection certainly delivers on the promise of Keaton’s smart tomboy sensibility. Couldn’t you just see her tooling around town in that green suit? And then, couldn’t you see just about any cool downtown girl you know rocking that grey coat? Good–because come fall 2012, they probably will be.
