TAKING A TRIP: For spring 2015, Band of Outsiders founder Scott Sternberg was initially inspired by his fall capsule collaboration with Scottish heritage brand Mackintosh, but in usual Band of Outsiders fashion, decided to take the story one step further. “Thinking about heritage got me imagining this as a 1964 barbecue dad who took mushrooms.”
The 26 looks embody the brand’s core Americana preppy aesthetic plus trippy tongue-in-cheek details such as floating argyle diamonds woven into a navy cashmere sweater or a shirt placket made with patchwork plaids that mimicked a tie. The classic rubberized coat was given a smattering of allover grommets, a pop of red, a nylon dégradé gingham print and even an inside-out version. In a nod to his California home, Sternberg also turned a reductive surf print into a sailboat motif used on a Mackintosh, a sweat suit and a poplin shirt and shorts. The mash-ups between fabrics and prints created an overall effect that was again quirky and inventive yet wearable.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
