Wednesday Whim - Band of Outsiders

Spring/Summer 2012 is coming on strong by designers everywhere. Fashion Week in NYC has begun. Designers are releasing lookbooks everywhere. And enthusiasts and die-hard fans alike are fawning over all of this.

LA-based brand Band of Outsiders released these Polaroid images (and more) of actress, Michelle Williams and painter, Ed Ruscha. Aside from the cool vibe the brand is known for and the stylish styling of the two, I'm in love with the designer's (Scott Sternberg) concept of combining the world of art with the world of fashion. A snippet of Scott's interview with Art Info's Ann Binlot below helps convey his message...
The Band of Outsiders spring/summer 2012 look book combines — as many labels have done or are doing — the worlds of fashion and art. In your opinion, what’s the relationship between the two?  
Well, I guess there's a craft behind both of them, the need to really understand and master the technical aspects of a medium to be able to properly express your vision. And there's an aggressively social aspect to both industries, a rarefied scene that surrounds and even drives both industries, as the tastes and opinions of those groups really resonate in the market.

What do you think? Do you agree or disagree?
