BAND OF OUTSIDERS
London based clothing label Band of Outsiders founded in Los Angeles has grown from a tiny operation designing men’s shirts and ties to now producing full men’s line.
A favourite among A-List celebrities and influencers such as: Chadwick Boseman, Dave Franco, and Fabian Lück more. Americana-inspired brand provides ‘classics with a twist’
generating a cult following for their impeccably cut trousers and unique prints.
The brand is now stocked at iconic stockists worldwide such as: Le Bon Marche in Paris, Fred Segal in LA and KaDeWe in Berlin.
For s+s 018 the brand have continued their nonchalant tailoring but reworking the brand’s new cropped take on classic staples for this collection. Key inspirations in the collections are workwear, maritime and the films of Jacques Tati.
The collection brings together a complete wardrobe, playfully embracing this season’s themes, with rough cotton twills, iconic Breton stripes and Tati’s ‘droll’ attitude. Details include triple stitched seams and slanted patch pockets. Naval prints feature heavily, from ‘the wave’ to the ‘killer shark’ and the ‘smelly cat’.
Ship-life concept pieces, such as lifejackets and parkas, are redesigned for every day wear. This season Band of Outsiders are delighted to work with Woolmark's newest innovation ‘Lightweight Denim Wool’, that further accentuates the collection’s workwear feel in texture and wearability.
