Unless you've got friends in high (fashion) places and the means to travel around the world twice yearly, chances are that your Fashion Week is mostly experienced from your computer, your phone, or another screen. Designer Scott Sternberg took that phenomenon to another level by creating a collection based on the intersection between the big screen and the small screen, the old and the new, mixing '40s-era film-noir screen sirens with Atari-style prints for a nostalgic but thoroughly modern collection that continues to redefine the Band of Outsiders' aesthetic.
The quirky schoolgirl of Band's past, with cute going-out pajamas or flowing prairie-inspired frocks, has certainly matured. Replacing the tomboyish column dresses are fitted, refined pencil-skirt versions with defined waists and high button collars. Consistent with BoO collections of the past, the dresses were certainly the standouts and, while the line was decidedly more ladylike, the accessories and prints kept this retro collection from looking too overtly girly. From the Atari character prints to the embellished, knitted high-top baseball caps, Sternberg certainly hasn't lost his dorky sense of humor.
