New York Fashion Weeks has seen some of our favourite labels roll out some of their best collection’s yet, and the latest comes from slamxhype favourite Band Of Outsiders with their Spring/Summer 2011 range.
This new collection continues Scott Sternberg’s modern, luxury take on preppy, and relaxed formal evening wear that his brand has become synonymous with. However, it also sees the brand expand even further into a more casual look with tees, casual blouson and leather jackets, summer parkas and shorts.
I’m a big fan of this label. It takes inspiration from the currently overused preppy style, without making it feel like 1950s fancy dress to offer a versatile and easy to wear look, especially if you want something more refined and grown up, but still a little bit special. It offers a more mature take on sports wear, but is still smart enough to wear to the office. Sadly the price tag and sizing (Band Of Outsiders comes up ridiculously small) make it a prohibitive purchase for many… but that only adds to the uniquness.
