Scott Sternberg’s Band of Outsiders is getting bigger. For Spring 2011, he introduced Girl, adding a breezy feminine aura to the brood. The new diffusion line is sophisticated without being too solemn. Draping faint floral and pale-colored fabrics, Sternberg balances Grecian-style cuts with shorter hemlines and long asymmetrical silk skirts with midriff-baring tops. Girl is a departure from the twisted preppy look that’s made the brand a cult favorite – but she’s still fresh enough to be part of the fam.
Band of Outsiders’ Boy and Man lines, meanwhile, are going strong. Country club casual was the name of the game for this season’s Boy, featuring knits and separates in crisp white, plaid and primary color blocks. As for Man, it was one of Sternberg’s best efforts yet: the suede varsity jackets and shrunken drawstring shorts oozed relaxed cool, and the Band x Sperry Top-siders they sported would be a hit with any Girl, Boy or Man!
