Band Of Outsiders Fall 2019 Menswear Collection Review
Description
Don't designers get tired of the 70s? Or do they even care that we're tired of that decade? In a collection of stylized basics and repurposed styles, Band Of Outsiders missed the mark for Fall 2019 Menswear by choosing to go to the past—borderline copying it—instead of finding new ways to fascinate us into the future!

What is it with designers insisting to return to the 1960s and 70s? Granted those were exciting times in fashion, we’re simply tired of all these reiterations of past styles and want to move forward. It’s one thing to be inspired by such eras, it’s a different matter entirely when a brand is borderline copying the decades altogether. Such was practically the case at Band of Outsider’s Fall 2019 Menswear presentation. Inspired by the impact of the 1969 Moon Landing, Angelo Van Mol‘s latest collection almost looked like a wardrobe for a 70s-set period film by Woody Allen. It had little to no original ideas, was basically an array of repurposed and elevated basics, and even the styling was unremarkable. However, the quality was notable, as each piece looked fitted the models well and were undeniably high-quality in construction. But these aren’t enough to convince us, nor other critics and clients, that this line is anything worth buying into (at least with its steep price points). Customers might fare better buying in vintage stores than buying a piece from this glorifiedand most likely overpricedrehashes of the 70s from Band of Outsiders.
