Band of Outsiders Grabs the Joystick

There’s something charming about a creative director who isn’t afraid to show his playful side. To kick off Band of Outsiders’ fall/winter 2013 collection—and tenth year in business—Scott Sternberg orchestrated a complex scavenger hunt, sending participants on a trek around Manhattan that’s still live-streaming on the brand’s website. As for the collection itself, he cites a slew of different Atari games as inspiration. Those familiar with old-school video games may recognize the asteroids, adventure keys and combat tanks woven into sweaters and echoed in dresses.
