Meet the New Team Behind Band of Outsiders


It’s been a tumultuous couple of years for cult favorites Band of Outsiders. The brand, originally founded in Los Angeles back in 2004, has closed, reopened and replaced its entire creative team twice since 2015. Band of Outsiders is now helmed by brand director Daniel Hettmann, previously of Arnys and a company that produces shows for Vetements, and Angelo Van Mol, a Savile Row trained designer and tailor.

At this season’s London Fashion Week Men’s, the brand showed its latest collection for 2018 spring/-summer. The maritime inspired collection was displayed at London’s Top Secret Comedy Club, with a line up of London’s nest stand up comedians oering the fashion crowd a respite from the endless shows.

After the presentation, we caught up with Hettmann and Van Mol to talk about Band of Outsider’s spring/summer collection, bringing fun to fashion week, and their plans for the brand.
