Boy by Band of Outsiders Spring 2009 Lookbook
by Kelsey Keith
L.A. label Band of Outsiders taps Sarah Silverman as its muse for their Boy Spring 2009 lookbook. Designer Scott Sternberg picked Cantor's Delicatessen, an iconic Jewish deli in Los Angeles, as the shoot location and styled Silverman in a few of his signature boy-meets-girl tailored looks from the women's diffusion line, complete with killer neon pumps created by Manolo Blahnik for the label. Sternberg took his "fetishized American sportswear" to more girlish levels this season, stocking it full of suspender-strapped skirts and cotton piqué dresses.
Silverman, famous for her red carpet hoodie-and-Converse aesthetic may seem an unusual choice for the brand that's typically aligned with a starlet audience (Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams have modeled for previous campaigns), but her nonchalance and raw beauty embodies the line's versatility, captured under the lens of Sternberg's trusty Polaroid camera.
