Bag By Band Of Outsiders


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

A Charitable Confederacy


Confederacy co-founder and stylist Ilaria Urbinati has teamed up with Tim Foster of Pennyroyal Studio to create a limited-edition pendant necklace featuring sea-inspired charms ($100), with all proceeds going to THERAsurf.

“THERAsurf is a way of bringing surfing’s incredibly therapeutic benefits to kids with autism and other special needs,” she told at last night’s Confederacy party to celebrate their efforts. She was joined at the shop by Benjamin Bratt, Krysten Ritter, Sarah Shahi, Confederacy co-owner Danny Masterson, and host Scott Caan. “It just really changed surfing for me,” Caan, who has taken several kids out surfing, says of his work with the organization. “To this day, I love bringing kids that experience.”

Urbinati’s got everyone lending a hand in one way or another; she also commissioned Band of Outsiders’ Scott Sternberg and retail partner Rebecca Minkoff to create special items. Cue a Polaroid-print-emblazoned polo from Band and one of Minkoff’s hold-all raffia totes.

Ron Weasley For Band Of Outsiders?


The summer of Harry Potter—and with it, the eight-film epic—is coming to a close. It’s farewell to sorcery, but hello to modeling for Rupert Grint (a.k.a. Ron Weasley) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), two of the franchise’s stars. Band of Outsiders’ Scott Sternberg selected the duo for his Fall BOO lookbook, which he shoots personally every season—on vintage Polaroid film no less. (Previous stars have included James Marsden, Dave Franco, Donald Glover, and Andrew Garfield; Harry himself, Daniel Radcliffe, hasn’t taken a turn, but he is a longtime fan of the label.)

“I love those films and the characters so much,” Sternberg told “They’re full of imagination and endless ideas. With the last film coming out this summer, it felt like a cool opportunity to capture this moment in these two actors’ lives, and give them a chance to poke a little fun at the whole thing too.”

Rowdy With A Chance Of Meatballs


Never one to shy away from a spectacle, Band of Outsiders’ Scott Sternberg decided it was time to go camp—and back to camp. Together with his new retail partners Net-a-Porter and Mr Porter, the designer hosted a screening of the legendary cult classic Meatballs under the stars at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. “We really wanted to do something that was indicative of summer. And what’s more L.A.—and what’s more us—than summer camp, and meatballs, and dead people six feet under?” the designer deadpanned. “As always, we’re amused by the notion of a fashion party with a meatball theme. And the cool thing about these guys is they are too.” Thick in the throes of designing Fall ’12, the moonlit screening was the perfect reprieve pre-fashion week, where Sternberg will be presenting his womenswear collection for Boy and Girl underneath the High Line.

Soon-to-be Spider-man Andrew Garfield (left, with Sternberg) arrived stealthily on a moped and blended well in the hipster-heavy crowd, including Wren’s Melissa Coker, Sarah Silverman, and Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis. Chatting with Net-a-Porter’s Holli Rogers and Tracy Taylor, Nicole Richie mused that though it was her first time meeting the Band designer, her inclination to menswear made them fast friends. “Joel wears Band of Outsiders all the time,” Richie said of her husband (and date for the night), “and I constantly find myself borrowing his stuff.” The end result? “I just started buying the line now on my own and I have to say I’ve been a huge fan ever since.”

Band Of Beginners


“There’s death, it’s not all gumdrops and rainbows, but I walked out of the movie theater in this perfectly melancholy state,” Band of Outsiders creative director Scott Sternberg says of Beginners, the new film by his friend Mike Mills, starring Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, and Mélanie Laurent. Sternberg hosted a screening of the new flick in Los Angeles last night, for pals like Miranda July and Liz Goldwyn, the first of what he hopes will be many Band movie nights to come. Next week in New York, Opening Ceremony will oblige with an East Coast screening, too.

Beginners is based in part on Mills’ life; McGregor, Mills says, plays a character who “shares some things with me: We both do graphic design, we both often figure out what we’re thinking by drawing, we both have dogs, and we both did record covers for a very real band named The Sads.” (They also both also wear a lot of Band of Outsiders. Sternberg provided the character’s wardrobe for the film.) In Beginners, McGregor’s character, Oliver, finds love just as his world is rocked by his father’s announcement that he is gay and has terminal cancer. “It’s really a life-affirming movie—it’s about how you start over and how do you forget your bad habits,” Sternberg tells

Mills, for his part, is no beginner. He’s directed music videos for Blonde Redhead and Sonic Youth, lensed the previous feature film Thumbsucker with Tilda Swinton and Keanu Reeves, created the brand identity for Kim Gordon’s much-loved fashion line X-Girl, and developed textile designs for Marc Jacobs. In addition to the movie, he’s also releasing a book, Drawings From the Film Beginners, of his illustrations (which appear as the work of “Oliver” in the film), launching next week at Opening Ceremony.
