Band of Outsiders

band of outsiders cruise 2012

Florence: Scott Sternberg’s C/R 12 Band of Outsiders collection featured active-inspired elements that lent a streetwise edge to his signature masculine/feminine looks. Blazers, pencil skirts and body-con sheaths took the characteristically tomboyish line in a more grown-up, womanly direction, and this season’s models, all clad in wayfarers and lace-up Manolo Blahnik shoes, seemed to have more attitude than usual. The Pitti Uomo guest designer also presented his S/S 12 men’s collection at the show, which was set to the soundtrack of West Side Story and featured colorfully dressed dancers. –Whitney Kessler
