It is hard not to love a Woody Allen film. There’s always great comedy, perplex characters, an affinity for New York, and of course, Diane Keaton wearing menswear.

Scott Sternberg, the designer behind Boy. by Band of Outsiders, cites Keaton’s character Mary Wilkie in the 1979 Woody Allen-directed film Manhattan as the inspiration behind his pre-fall 2011 collection. Mary Wilkie was a carefree, yet intelligent woman caught in the confines of witty banter and romantic trysts. Her masculine style provided an air of intellectual authority, and Sternberg’s collection is no different.

The 70’s inspired collection—comprised of button-up shirts with contrast collars, sharp tailored blazers, tuxedo jackets, trousers, oversized boxy jackets, and corduroy suits—reads like a love letter to Diane Keaton’s character, yet it still easily translates to street wear for the modern gal that embraces an easy and effortless tomboy look.
