Band of Outsiders Spring/Summer 2015 Lookbook
Scott Sternberg’s back with another solid collection for Band of Outsiders. For Spring 2015, inspiration comes from preppy American sportswear of the early to mid Sixties, with a real ode to the JFK and Mad Men era with its business-to-BBQ-ready summer casualness. Expect spring/summer must-haves like plaid shirting and a good mix of shorts. This season will also introduce a collaboration with Mackintosh, bringing three MACs into the lineup. The “Inside Out MAC” highlights the construction of the jacket by its literal inside-out design, while the “Grommets Gone Wild MAC” plays with the idea of an impenetrable raincoat by strategically placing grommets all over the coat as an aspect of design rather than ventilation purposes. The “Future MAC” was created in the lightest nylon possible and takes traditional buttons and enamels them in a way only Band can. Other pieces include an argyle track suit, a polo with a typewriter and letters spinning off into space, and other quirky images like bunny rabbits and a mushroom hidden underneath the pocket. Look for the Band of Outsiders Spring/Summer 2015 collection to hit shelves early next spring.
