Fashion Week: Band of Outsiders Spring 2011 Collection

Scott Sternberg takes us back to military school dormitories with a hint of college campus in the 90's. He not only accessorizes with light-rimmed eyewear (a contrast to the heavy-frames that are ubiquitous), but he takes his preppy sensibility a huge leap further by bearing calves, in every variation. We couldn't help but also notice that college football season was at last underway.

Fashion Week: Girl by Band of Outsiders

Band of Outsiders designer Scott Sternberg's new Girl collection may be his most feminine, but you can't take the boy out of the Girl. The fabrics and silhouettes may be softer and lighter, yet he playfully infuses military sensibility and tuxedo details into his dresses and rompers. It's that sense of ambiguity that's utterly captivating.

Fashion Week: Lorick Spring 2011 Collection

Called Linear Dawn, Abigail Lorick's Spring collection, which debuted at the Tela Design Studio this past week, focuses on sheer fabrics in a soft palette of pale greys, blues and pinks, including hand-painted georgette. We fell in love with Lorick's feminine designs a couple years ago, gravitating mostly to her painted silks and mid-century silhouettes. The designer, who also designs for Gossip Girl, told WWD that her new collection is about "letting go and getting to her roots."
