In men’s wear, Scott Sternberg continued to nurture the cult following for his extremely narrow, boyish suits, adding a patchwork style of gray suitings to the repertoire. He also made concessions to a customer looking for a greater sense of ease, tailoring cozy trousers out of a shetland wool lined with cotton jersey. And he devised a rubber, trompe l’oeil version of the classic boat shoe for his Sperry Top-Sider collaboration.
With Bogart on the brain, Sternberg’s take on classic all-American sportswear for his Boy by Band of Outsiders women’s line (see images) was pitch perfect. Layered with abandon, cardigans were extra long and rugby striped sweaters added a dash of cozy to his well-cut suiting. There was even a luxe quotient with the designer’s first foray into fur à la a chic gray chinchilla coat.
