Inspired by The Hunger Games, the Boy by Band of Outsiders SS '13 ready to wear collection attempted to make war beautiful.

As the models strutted down the runway covered in white war paint, the theatrical thematics of this collection were clear. Designer Scott Sternberg drew inspiration form tales that explore themes of war such as Battle Royale and the vastly popular The Hunger Games series. Taking these war motifs, he created a collection that capitalized utility with a laid-back Californian twist.

The garments were glorious in flowy silks, structured jackets and detailing with bold clasps. The color palette was muted with army greens, printed sky blues and chambray. With this take on beautifying battles, the Boy by Band of Outsiders SS '13 collection puts up a good fight.
