It might be the subtropical weather or its positioning on the far western edge of the continental US, but Los Angeles has always been a hotbed of visionaries and utopianist thinking. And Entireworld, a premium basics brand from Angeleno designer Mr Scott Sternberg, is built on such optimistic, futuristic ideals. The geodesic domes of Mr Buckminster Fuller, the primary tones and languorous sensuality of Mr Éric Rohmer’s films, Rubik’s Cubes and the 1979 Sesame Street segment Geometry Of Circles by Mr Philip Glass are all inspirations behind Mr Sternberg’s creation, and they are as eccentric as they are specific, in much the same way they were with his first creation, Band of Outsiders.
Like most Angelenos, Mr Sternberg came to town from somewhere else – in his case, Dayton, Ohio. After working for a while at the Creative Artists Agency, Mr Sternberg, with some coaching from his friend Ms Emily Woods, who was then CEO of J.Crew, started Band of Outsiders with a line of ties in 2004. Band of Outsiders and Mr Sternberg broke up in 2015 and he began moodboarding what would become one of the most exciting brands of 2018. As we proudly launch the new collection of Entireworld on MR PORTER, we talked to him about what goes into the threads.
