In some seriously saddening news from the fashion world today, reports are swirling that cult brand Band of Outsiders is folding. Fashionista reports that the brand canceled all of its Fall wholesale orders and that multiple sources from within the label say the company is "done."
The same report states that, unfortunately, the L.A.-based brand has also laid off the majority of its staff. Scott Sternberg, the brand's head designer, founded his brainchild in 2004 as a men's tie-and-shirting company, but the label's offerings swiftly expanded to included more mens- and womenswear. Celebrity devotees included Michelle Williams, who also starred in the brand's 2012 boy. campaign; comic Aziz Ansari; rapper Donald Glover; Maggie Gyllenhaal; and many more.
