Early this summer Band of Outsiders (ps I always want to call this brand Band of Horses, anyone else know the band??) had a little sample sale in what was their SoHo space...the sale was filled of these skirts. I couldn't resist not buying it. Polka dots, gold flakes, and flowy? What is there not to love about this skirt?! Shortly after buying this skirt their flagship store was closed and the label pretty much dissolved (read here), which sadly meant their fall collection wouldn't go into production (check it out here if you haven't yet). Although designer Scott Sternberg will no longer be part of the company, there's still hope for the brand. According to NYMag, a Beligan company won the auction for Band of Outsiders. Who knows what lies for their faith...but I hope just maybe Scott's designs will hit the selves.
There been a lot of brands and companies closing up shop. Any of whom you'll miss?
