Designer Scott Sternberg showed the Band of Outsiders menswear line at New York Fashion Week over the weekend, and he said it was inspired by a photo shoot he did at the Los Angeles Times building.
"[We were going] around this enormous structure -- most of which is empty -- and we just fell in love with being in those rooms, and all the stories behind them," he told the Times. "And it was a little sad how empty the building was. ... And I'd wanted to do something very graphic-driven for a collection -- playing with prints and jacquards -- and this idea of the 'death of the newspaper' came to mind as a theme, with this sort of newsboy silhouette and it went from there."

The collection was big on gray, black and white, as well as graphic patterns like polka dots and window pane prints. There were also newsboy caps!
