Band of Outsiders Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2014 New York

The Band of Outsider’s set was a rather evocative one. Created to look as if the audience was gazing out on the shimmering city lights of the Los Angeles valley from behind the famed Hollywood sign, the room was instantly transported to the place designer Scott Sternberg’s has called home for 14 years, Los Angeles, California.   

Being a born and bread California girl myself, the collection that came down the runway felt oh so familiar. From the sandals worn with socks (I actually have photos of myself wearing that particular look) to the reflective aviator glasses and the models fresh faces, their hair pulled loosely back at the sides, Sternberg got the styling just right.

As for the clothes, those too were a comfy casual amalgamation of all things west coast. There were the easy maxi dresses, sporty mesh tank dresses, baja poncho like fringe hoodies and silk tops that looked like they had been crafted from vintage scarves.  By far the best pieces, those that look more directional rather then referential, were the oversized nylon numbers that came embellished with zipper details that could be used to control the volume (if so desired) and a circle cue motif that added interest to the edges.

This was a well executed show that should find fans in far flung places. You don’t have to be a California girl to appreciate the golden state’s cool style.
