Designer Spotlight: Band Of Outsiders

One of My Favee Ready-To-Wear Designers ! "Scott Sternberg founded Band of Outsiders in January 2004. The former Hollywood agent began by re-cutting and re-contextualizing vintage fabrics to create classic menswear with hand-sewn seams, thoughtful detail, shrunken proportions and using, Sternberg recalls, "whatever I could afford without having to by hundreds of meters of fabric." Ron Herman in L.A., Jeffrey in New York and Barneys subsequently bought the collection. From there, the limited-edition line has grown to include a full women's collection titled Boy, a specialty line devoted to Scotland and a collaboration with Sperry. I recently met with Sternberg at his shared SoHo showroom, where the color palate of his fall '08 menswear collection is notably darker than usual but includes plenty of plaids, and the women's line features, among other things, a radical removable raccoon fur collar. In anticipation of his presentation in Chelsea tomorrow, we discuss the representations of Scottish lineage, peaked labels and his pronouncedly sartorial upbringing." Source:Paper Mag
