Band of Outsiders



New York: Designer Scott Sternberg’s presentations are some of the most inspirational each season, partly because the designer was formerly an agent in Los Angeles. He approaches his shows like a Hollywood director, placing models in movie set-like installations. For F/W 10, Sternberg’s quirky collegiate was inspired by Woody Allen films from around the time of Sleeper (1973), as well as what rowdy party-goers at an Aspen ski lodge would wear during that era. The standout pieces included lush corduroy suits cut in the brand’s trademark “school boy” fit and pants made up in speckled flannel and “golf course” plaid. The collaboration with Sperry Top-Sider continued for another season, with spectator shoes, corduroy chukka boots, and woolen penny loafers. An oxford cloth tuxedo shirt was a perfect representation of what most loyal devotees of the brand love about Sternberg’s chosen aesthetic — a boyish and slightly offbeat retelling of East Coast tradition.
