Drawn Detail Collections

The Band of Outsiders Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection is Fresh

— February 12, 2014 — Fashion
Preppy meets surrealism in this absurdly chic Band of Outsiders Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear show.

Instead of a runway show, Band of Outsiders chose to put on a viewing of their new collection. Behind the mod models was a white background with a drawing of a room on it in black. It looks as though it was doodled down by a bored artist, and is a great backdrop for the collections.

At its heart, the Band of Outsiders Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear collection is very preppy, but it’s the details that give it a surreal and inspired edge. Tee shirts, trousers, collegiate-like writing on the front of garments and lots of creepers make this a very easy to wear collection, but if you look closer you’ll see that not all is like it seems. Many of the details on the clothing a simply drawn on in white, such as buttons, pockets and pant seams.
Trend Themes
1. Preppy-surrealism Fashion - The trend of preppy clothing with surrealistic and imaginative details presents disruptive innovation opportunities for fabric manufacturers to experiment with unconventional textures and prints.
2. Alternative Fashion Shows - The trend of presenting fashion collections in alternative ways presents disruptive innovation opportunities for event production companies to think beyond the traditional runway shows, using unconventional backdrops and formats.
3. Hand-drawn Details - The trend of hand-drawn details in clothing design presents disruptive innovation opportunities for technology companies to develop custom digital tools for fashion designers to create unique designs without being restricted by manual artistic skills.
Industry Implications
1. Textile and Fabric Manufacturing - The textile and fabric manufacturing industry can take advantage of the trend of preppy-surrealism fashion to showcase the usability of unconventional fabrics that reflect a creative and imaginative aura.
2. Event Production - The event production industry can leverage alternative fashion shows as an emerging trend to design memorable events and showcase brands with imaginative installations and audiovisual components.
3. Tech for Fashion Design - The tech industry can create software applications that enable fashion designers to quickly and effortlessly incorporate hand-drawn details and illustrations into their digital proofs and prototypes.
