Band of Outsiders’ Intellectual Property, Inventory To Be Auctioned

BAND OF BIDS: Band of Outsiders’ intellectual property rights and inventory are to be put up for auction. According to a public notice placed in today’s weekly print issue of WWD and the Wall Street Journal, the brand’s secured creditor, Belgian fashion fund CLCC SA will hold a public auction on July 29 at the offices of its legal representation, Otterbourg P.C.
News that Band of Outsiders had canceled its fall line and laid off staff first broke on May 26. The label has since closed its retail operations at 70 Wooster Street, following a liquidation sale. A source close to the situation told WWD that CLCC SA gained peaceful possession of Band of Outsiders’ assets after the label was unable to make payment on a credit line of more than $ 2 million. Despite the label’s liquidation efforts, the inventory to be auctioned still includes more than 5,000 units, the source said.
It is understood that Alan Cohen of Abacus Advisors Group — who is overseeing next week’s auction — is taking a wait-and-see approach when it comes to selling the brand’s intellectual property and inventory as a single asset or as separate entities. “They are going to take offers for both assets and individually…depending

Portable Property

Portable Property

What fueled the Victorian passion for hair-jewelry and memorial rings? When would an everyday object metamorphose from commodity to precious relic? In ‘Portable Property’, John Plotz examines the new role played by portable objects in persuading Victorian Britons that they could travel abroad with religious sentiments, family ties, and national identity intact. In an empire defined as much by the circulation of capital as by force of arms, the challenge of preserving Englishness while living overseas became a central Victorian preoccupation, creating a pressing need for objects that could readily travel abroad as personifications of Britishness. At the same time a radically new relationship between cash value and sentimental associations arose in certain resonant mementoes – in teacups, rings, sprigs of heather, and handkerchiefs, but most of all in books.’Portable Property’ examines how culture-bearing objects came to stand for distant people and places, creating or preserving a sense of self and community despite geographic dislocation.Victorian novels – because they themselves came to be understood as the quintessential portable property – tell the story of this change most clearly. Plotz analyzes a wide range of works, paying particular attention to George Eliot’s ‘Daniel Deronda’, Anthony Trollope’s ‘Eustace Diamonds’, and R. D. Blackmore’s ‘Lorna Doone’. He also discusses Thomas Hardy and William Morris’ vehement attack on the very notion of cultural portability. The result is a richer understanding of the role of objects in British culture at home and abroad during the Age of Empire.
