Band of Outsiders
Scott Sternberg will show his men's SS 2012 collection
Band of Outsiders will be the special guest at the upcoming 80th edition of Pitti Uomo in Florence (Florence, 14-17 June 2011).
Scott Sternberg, Founder and Creative Director of Band of Outsiders, will show his men’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection along with both of his women’s Resort 2012 collections - Boy. by Band of Outsiders, and his newest collection, Girl. by Band of Outsiders - on the evening of June 15th at the old Manifattura Tabacchi. This multifaceted, ambitious production will mark the first time Band of Outsiders will show outside of the USA.
"I've always tried to approach showing our collections in a non-traditional way, which makes Pitti Uomo the perfect platform for us, and a really exciting opportunity to up our game.” said Scott Sternberg.
thecorner.com, the online boutique showcasing a selection of cutting-edge fashion and accessories, will portray Band of Outsiders through an exclusive video of the evening and the collections available in the mini-store dedicated to the brand.
