WOOLMARK x BAND OF OUTSIDERS
Band Of Outsiders' key inspirations for FW18 is the idyllic winter-sport holiday. In tune with Band's philosophy, the collection consists of a complete wardrobe for tongue-in-cheek every day life. An ode to the great snowy mountains, this season's main colours were named after iconic ski-resorts around the world; such as Verbier Grey, Aspen White, Telluride Red and Zermatt Beige. Print names allude to winter high life; like the baring polar bear, the band skier, the mountain runner and the jaeger blizzard.
A variety of lush materials fit for winter are presented in this collection, with a big focus on outerwear and high quality wool knitwear, on which Band collaborated with The Woolmark Company and their sourcing tool 'THE WOOL LAB', featuring some of the best merino wool yarns in the world.
The unique teddy bear coat from FW17 makes a booming comeback, in Polar Bear white this time, with leather details for contrast. Indoor winter times are enjoyed Band-style too, with the introduction of comfy pyjamas. Shearling coats are another first, as well as some great wool accessories like beanies and scarves. Over-dyed and embellished denim and corduroy trousers match the warm, wool tops and coats perfectly. Per Band staple, the tailoring is nonchalant, with Band's now renowned jackets and 'formal tracksuits', redesigned for daily wear. The Band bomber reappears in new versions with this season's nostalgic alpine inspired band logo on the back.
