• Le Chaim! Sarah Silverman for Band of Outsiders!

    Band of Outsiders designer, Scott Sternberg, proves why he deserves his recent CFDA nomination for Menswear Designer of the Year.  Ironically, he proves it with their girl line, Boy by Band of Outsiders.  Sternberg tagged Sarah Silverman for their latest lookbook and The Moment took the time to recall his experience with the “Jewy” comedienne and their photoshoot.  Commenter Randall Todd said it best, “Brilliant boundary busting.”

    Was the funny girl a natural as a model?

    The woman is a pro. The entire shoot took two hours, tops. Easy breezy.

    Where was the shoot’s location?

    Canter’s Delicatessan, which is a very old, well-known, super Jewy deli in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles. Is that how you spell “Jewy”? Jewie? Can I even say that?

    Well, she’s said it before. Silverman’s Wikipedia page describes her performances as “satirical comedy [that] addresses social taboos and controversial topics such as racism, sexism and religion.” One hardly associates Band of Outsiders with such risqué behavior.

    It’s less about the content and delivery and more about her singularity and honesty. Plus she’s totally hot. And hilarious. And completely different from Kirsten Dunst, who worked on the show with us modeling similar looks. We thought it would be a good way to show how versatile the Boy pieces are.

    Name something funny Silverman said on set.

    “Wait, I might actually like you.”

    The Fighting Undrcrwn Goes Green

    In an effort to commemorate the upcoming debaucherous holiday, our friends at Undrcrwn showed us their chicken.  No…not that chicken.  We’re talking about their “Fighting Chicken” Tee.  The St. Paddy’s-inspired shirt features their infamous Roscoe the Chicken mascot and will make folks think twice before pinching you, unless they want one in the throat.

    They also sent us over the first delivery of their Spring ‘09 lookbook featuring up-and-coming rapper, Asher Roth.  The Steel Crew are big fans of Asher Rosh and this collaboration between the two is very welcome.  While the streetwear brand uses crisp colors with a lot of pop, their attention to detail is very mature.  I hope we get to see more like this in their next delivery.

    Click to see the rest of Undrcrwn’s lookbook…!

    Special thanks to Kari!

    6 Bests of The Moment | New York Fashion Week

    Now that New York Fashion Week is officially over, (and we’re glad it’s done), it is now time for reflection over what we just saw…or didn’t see.  You see, we’re all the way here on the West Coast where fashion exists but it doesn’t exist to the extent where the whole city will halt and devote a whole week to it (Note: we did have a Fashion Week that ultimately failed.)  That is why we appreciate The Moment’s coverage of New York Fashion Week.  They put their blog on overdrive and we’re inundated, in a good way, with all things fashion.  Also, they handle themselves professionally and make the readers feel like fashion insiders as opposed to teenage fashion interns who type in all caps, “OMG! I’m inside the Miss Sixty show!  Aren’t you jelly?!?!”  So we decided to post our favorites of The Moment blog’s fashion week commentary.

    Have you ever heard of fashion bloggers calling Karl Lagerfeld “Uncle Karl?”  Have you ever heard of Stephen Colbert call Bill O’Reilly “Papa Bear?”  Well Ralph Lauren is our Papa Bear.  I guess that makes us Lo Heads.

    2. The Fashion Telex | Brian Reyes

    [Words by Horatio Silva]

    We love any good story about model spills on the runway.  It’s almost like FML without the overbearing feeling that life is not worth living anymore.  Suck it up, models.  It’s not the end of the world and at the end of the day, people still treat you better compared to to the rest of society.

    GRN Apple Tree Spring Hypocrisy Collection: February 2009

    The Cloud Button up is composed of light blue American cotton with a distinctive white contrast insert at the tip of the left collar.  Perfect for cool days and nights.  The soft blue color blends with any outfit.  Clear buttons throughout.

    GRN Apple Tree comes with it again for its 2nd Delivery for Spring ‘09.  In a further attempt to pull us out of this recession, they use the color schemes of “dreary blues and whites” and good ol’ American cotton for most of their feature pieces.  Again, I would call it classic 1950’s California styling as they reinvent the classic short-sleeved button up.  Keeping in line with their Hypocrisy theme, I appreciate their efforts to not delude us with where our economy’s at.  It’s in the crapper and it would behoove us to dress a little bit simpler.

    You ain’t from Russia, so girl why you Rushin’?

    Check out OntFront’s recent catwalk show in Frankfurt. Inspired by Russian design, I always admired the silhouette of the Russian uniform.  It’s just very proper.  Got the description in the inbox…

    -=The Royal influence of Russian Tsar Nicholas II prevails=-

    The influences go back to the roots of Russian designer LIZA KOIFMAN, where the last emperor Tsar Nicholas II of Russia ruled as Autocrat in 19th century. A tsar well-known for wearing the finest uniforms in history. Therefore rich suit fabrics of grey, anthracite, black and off-white are majestically combined with royal red, deep purple and fur. The collection consists of long coats, blazers, trousers, dress shirts, v-necks, baseball jackets and hooded blazers. All featured with quirky details like golden plated 3.5 mini-jack plugs on drawstrings, embroidered family weapons and shiny satin linings.

    Marc by Marc Jacobs Paris Opening

    From the looks of things, the store is sex. The high-banged one, Suzy Menkes, interviews Marc Jacobs’ business partner, Robert Duffy. Her expression exudes “curiosity.”

    Lazy Fashion Websites

    I don’t know if this is old or not, but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen it.  Margiela goes for a “broken website” experience as the aesthetic for their website.  There’s not much more to say about it except that it’s genius and lazy at the same time.  I wonder how much the web designer got paid for all this “work.”

    Ksubi has a similar look as they have Jay-z jocked Google’s layout.
