THE FULL REPORT: BOY BAND OF OUTSIDERS

For girls who want to dress super simply, while staying super chic, designer Scott Sternberg's womenswear line, Boy by Band of Outsiders is it.

Band-of-outsiders

Sternberg started out as a Hollywood agent (his ad campaigns always feature the likes of Kirsten Dunst, Jason Schwartzman or Sarah Silverman) before his transition to fashion designer, and boy are we glad he did! For spring/summer 2011, Sternberg crafted an impressive indoor set: beach umbrellas, boarding school beds and desks and a wall of antique window frames for a dozens of models to show-off old-school preppy attire gone contemporary chic.

Seer-sucker shirts, cashmere sweaters, silk georgette tunic dresses, pitch-perfect spring macs and drawstring pants in American sportswear colours were just some of the pieces that Sternberg described as “Classic but with a fresh eye”. Fresh-faced models with wind-swept hair presented the eminently wearable collection, and the overall feel was reminiscent of our favourite prep school pastimes. Band of Outsiders is undoubtedly one of our favourites this season!
