Band of Outsiders has undergone a big branding change. Plus, peep the super cute Resort collection.
As Greta Gerwig’s star continues to rise from indie Mumblecore queen to bona fide Hollywood ingenue, she’s showing up more and more on red carpets and in the fashion world. (She attended this year’s Met Ball wearing Saint Laurent.)
We chatted with her about braving scary red carpets, hiring a stylist, and getting wasted in the ladies’ room at the Met Ball. Just try not to want to be best friends with her after reading this interview.
Scott Sternberg always thinks carefully about the music for his shows. Billie Holiday was wafting through the showspace as guests entered, and it seemed the singer also influenced Sternberg’s Band of Outsiders fall collection. Though the music switched to Fiona Apple’s “Hot Knife” for the actual show (another amazing song choice), the clothes stayed true to Holiday’s time. There was a ’40s bent to the collection: Day dresses were a bit more slim-fitting than what we’re used to seeing from Sternberg–rouched knee-length skirts hugged the body; elbow-length gloves, fur collars, and red lipstick upped the ladylike factor; and a sponsorhip from Swarovski meant that crystals added glamor to evening looks.
So where does that quirky LA hipster thing we’ve come to expect from Sternberg work its way in?
“This is game control” says Scott Sternberg, his voice rising above the din of 6th avenue traffic passing us while we sit in his bespoke Band of Outsiders studio on wheels, its glass walls giving NYC a look inside the designer’s fall 2013 menswear collection, and into his rarified mind.
Inspired by the notion of urban utopia, maps, globes and architect Oscar Niemeyer’s Brasília, Sternberg is showing his newest menswear collection by sending two models, Matt and Miles, on a scavenger hunt throughout Manhattan. There’s a different look for each clue, and the hunt is being livestreamed throughout the day.
Inspired by The Hunger Games and Battle Royal, Scott Sternberg sent his California girls into battle comfortably at his Spring 2013 show.
While waiting to interview designer Scott Sternberg after his boy. by Band of Outsiders show yesterday I saw Aziz Ansari hanging around. So I had to treat myself and grab a few words with one of my fave comedians.
Fashionista: So what brings you here?
Aziz Ansari: I’m covering the show for Vogue for Kids. But there’s no kid’s stuff, so I don’t know why I came. All of the stuff, none of it is available in kid sizes.
I don’t know why they sent me.
Handsome and rugged leading men are having a fashion moment (see: Prada’s fall campaign and Ewan McGregor for Belstaff). Band of Outsiders is the latest label to tap a full-blooded male from the silver screen as its face.
For Boy. by Band of Outsiders’ spring look book, Scott Sternberg took yet another one of our favorite actresses on a dreamy, well-dressed Los Angeles adventure and documented it with a Polaroid. We can’t think of a better subject than Michelle Williams, or a better representation of this collection or this brand.
