A Band of Outsiders Collab You Can Only Score in South Korea

Speaking of designer collaborations, Scott Sternberg of Band of Outsiders has embarked on a sartorial partnership that, unless you’re in South Korea, won’t be within reach anytime soon. Bean Pole, a major brand in South Korea (and an affiliate of Samsung), has enlisted the LA-based master of prep to design both a women’s and men’s collection in time for fall. While many of the looks call to mind Sternberg’s signatures at Band of Outsiders and Boy – think polo shirts and well-tailored trousers paired with whimsical accessories – they’ll likely retail at a significantly lower price point: Bean Pole is a mainstream brand in the contemporary market. Chloe Sevigny has signed on as the face of the capsule collection, which debuted in Seoul on September 30.

While you can’t score pieces from the collaboration without logging some serious airtime, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video, you can take note of some of Sternberg’s styling tendencies, like layered looks, mis-matched plaids perfect for fall, and big floppy hats. Bold accents by way of bright green tights or a daffodil-yellow fur shrug are also key. For guys, suspenders are back, as are loose trousers worn low at the waist. And while women’s pants are being shortened at the hemline, men’s pant lengths are falling long enough to cause formidable bunching. Until the collection finds its way to eBay, your best bet is to look for similar styles a bit closer to home.
