NYC-native Daphne Javitch’s professional resume started with costume design for film and theater, but her own strong signature look quickly captured the attention of insiders and celebrities, which drew her into the word of editorial and personal styling. Daphne made another shift in 2010 (on 10/10/10, to be exact), when she launched her underwear line TEN at Opening Ceremony’s New York store, earning her a firm spot in the heart of the cool-kid fashion world.
This fashion It girl is the subject of our Band of Outsiders lookbook, and she took some time to talk with the brand’s rep, Nicole Cari, about the label.
NICOLE CARI: How did you first become an insider at Band of Outsiders?
DAPHNE JAVITCH: The abridged version: my best friend and I bonded over Band early in our friendship (we both bought the original pea coat one sweltering New York July). She knew I was obsessed, so when Band asked her to model a Polaroid lookbook campaign, she invited me along. That's when I first met Scott and Nicole. I forced my way in after that!
NC: Why do you like wearing Band?
DJ: The clothes are considered, wearable, and unboring. And I love the brand narrative.
NC: If Band of Outsiders could choose anyone, alive or dead, who would you want to see in one of Scott's Polaroid campaigns?
DJ: Joan Didion.
NC: Which piece from resort are you most excited to wear as soon as possible?
DJ: The white jumpsuit with the deep V. I wore it the day I got it with a red TEN bra. The outfit is the epitome of brand alliance! I could wear that jumpsuit every day.
NC: What other brands do you think Band mixes nicely with when you're making up an outfit?
DJ: I mix Band with all brands and vintage. It’s a balancer, and balance is my favorite element of style.
