Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld’s much-hyped The Little Black Jacket traveling exhibition kicks off tonight with a party in Soho for celebrities and fashion industry insiders. The week-long homage to the French house classic will open to the public on Friday, with 113 black-and-white photographs of A-listers such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Joan Smalls, and Yoko Ono, who adapted the iconic jacket to fit their own personal style.

Paris men’s fashion week just got a little bigger. Band of Outsiders and Hardy Amies have both been confirmed to show for the first time during the June lineup. And in true Band of Outsiders fashion, the label’s designer, Scott Sternberg, has taken matters into his own hands, tapping one model to act as a living mannequin, who will show off all the looks during the course of a 60-hour period and live in a cardboard and wood plank box. Amies will show as part of the official calendar. [WWD]

In the leadup to New York fashion week, designers go through hundreds of behind-the-scenes preparations to arrive at the completed show. This NYFW, we’ve sweet-talked a few of them into giving us an exclusive peek behind the curtain as they cast, score, style, and ready their presentations. Next up: Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders.
“Nicole hard at work.”
“Tina working through the casting board.”
“Lucy, our tailor, having deep thoughts by the sewing machine.”
Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders and Boy has always been one to think outside the box, but his latest collaboration is, at least in the literal sense, the exact opposite. For the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, which kicks off tomorrow in Los Angeles, the designer was commissioned by ForYourArt to create a limited-edition tote as part of artist Liz Glynn’s Black Box performance space. For this exhibition, Glynn (who once rebuilt Rome in a day with her The 24-Hour Roman Reconstruction exhibit in 2008) created a place where “anything can and will happen unannounced,” according to a statement from the festival organizers. And Sternberg’s canvas tote, which will be handed out (for free) in the Black Box, doesn’t give any clues as to what’s going to happen, either. The bag reads: “I went to Liz Glynn’s Black Box thing where anything can happen and all I got was this lousy Band of Outsiders tote bag and a super informative ForYourArt map.”
Black Box will open nightly at 8 p.m. at 830 Highland Ave., L.A., from January 19-29. For more info, visit PacificStandardTimeFestival.org.
