Say hello to the prairie girl from the Wild Wild West! For AW12, Band Of Outsiders sent their women’s labels Girl, and Boy, down the catwalk against an idealised backdrop of the rocky canyon. Cowgirl-perfect pieces from itsy bitsy floral frocks and Alpacca knits to faded check shirts and shearling-lined coats created an utterly charming show that is sure to be one of the highlights of New York Fashion Week. After all, who doesn't love a little bit of wintertime romance?
Despite playing heavily on a theme, there was nothing cliché about the Band Of Outsides AW12 show. Scott Sternberg is another one of those American designers who knows how to make separates that cool girls just have to have in their wardrobes. We think part of this is down to the way he pieces a look together – a rose print flowing dress teamed with a coloured faux fur gilet are two pieces we'll be working next winter, as is the stripe Mexican-inspired oversized cape and pencil skirt combo!
