All Images /The Fashionisto
Who says lookbooks should all be shot indoors against plain white backgrounds? Not I said the duck. I respect Band of Outsiders for doing things a bit differently. First of all, they don’t even use models – usually just ultimate hipster actor Jason Schwartzman and Crazy Beautiful star Kirsten Dunst. Second, the clothes are geeky and preppy and remind me of what my Grandad wore in the 60s (he was a similar height to Jason Schwartzman too). Third, how cool is this entire lookbook shot on grainy polaroid film? I don’t even care if it’s cliche, I like it – it’s like a little story of a day in the life of a funny weirdo. I’ve never actually tried on the clothes, so I do wonder if they’re better suited to short guys (Shwartzman is only 5’6″), but I’ll try to try some on next week when I’m in New York. I’m into it.
I LIKE YOU!
