Laurel Canyon: 1967

Picture it: The year is 1967. The place: Laurel Canyon. Tucked away in the hills of Los Angeles, bohemian bungalows fill the canyon inhabited by the coolest and most talented in the music industry. Marijuana smoke fills the air and Frank Zappa could take a stroll down the road and hear the tunes of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s guitars echoing through the hills. Graham Nash moved out to LA to stay with his lover, Joni Mitchell. All hanging out together, co-writing songs, taking drugs, and messing around.. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Michelle Philips, Linda Ronstadt, Mama Cass, The Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, and Jackson Browne were just a few of the groovy rock ‘n’ roll Bandits that were making history in the free love world of Laurel Canyon. Other stars from all of the world were known to have frequented the canyon to visit their famous friends, too. Here are some dreamy stills from the time we all wish we could go back to and be a part of…57e23985243da8211e7d5db8be0fe954 3ac8b3ea7d530dbee3a79d0c0d2bd7f4 5d4d4374a67a713d5d2c0d46b8c4aed0 6a61a67e8f7aa943b281f7695adda211 6bd9117fdc46844d043f32120c5c83a5 73e4743b5b6dbccc12e2490bface1140 392320d8c7758be1a6da5da4590af189 c0a8fc71cfe8b9dcf8650301d24f5e1a df94836453597c27a1c9b65602e0c43f f05c905c14859df38af336bba4d49be0-1 Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.19.34 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.19.54 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-10 at 1.20.48 PM

Bandit Fashion Week Favs

Fashion Week for Fall 2015 RTW in New York and London has ended and boy are we satisfied with what we saw! 70’s bandit babe style was prominent on the runways. From suede to fringe, to lace and bandanas, we’re having daydreams of a designer dude ranch over here. There were definitely some stand out designers that pulled at our little cowgirl heart strings. Here’s a look at our favorite bandit-esque looks from Fashion Week!

 

 Anna Sui has proven once again that she has mastered 70’s boho chic adorned with lace-up boots and knitted viking helmets.

Burberry Prorsum blew us away with bohemian florals and AMAZING head-to-toe suede fringe looks.

We’re in love with the enchanted, romantic, Victorian-esque lace and embroidery that dominated Alberta Ferrettis (Milan) runway.

House of Holland featured graphic red and white stripes and very bandit-y neck handkerchiefs.

Coach totally won us over. They really stepped up their game with a fresh, edgy vibe. They even sported bandanas, our fave accessory of 2015! Their show also included AMAZE outerwear with badass leather and luscious shearling.

Ralph Lauren brought class with heavenly knits paired with fringe, suede, and fur – mixed with Native American inspired accessories. The looks really screamed Snow Bandit.

Mara Hoffman‘s style is the epitome of Desert Goddess. Her collection featured beautiful tribal and mountain range inspired prints. Her oversized fur coats killed us and her opulent gold and white printed two-piece sets sparkled down the catwalk.

Bandit Stacking Sets

We love a good arm party… So much so, that we designed our bracelets with the intention of stacking, mixing and matching.
We’re now offering our favorite bracelets in 4 different Stacking Sets. The best part is, if you buy the set it’s cheaper than buying the individual bracelets.

Who says you can’t have ‘em all?! Stack up here x

Bandit Babe: Nico

For one album only, Nico sang with The Velvet Underground and it is, to this day, one of the most popular and instantly recognizable albums from The Velvet Underground. Nico, a tall, stylish, throaty Scandinavian was brought together with The Velvet Underground by Andy Warhol. Her low and slow vocals on the album, crisp white pant suits, and blunt blonde bangs are something that is wholly her own and we can’t get enough of it. This beaut has effortlessly cool style and mystery to boot… a true femme fatale.

Kansai Yamamoto – The Looks of Ziggy Stardust

In 1972, David Bowie became the ultra glam sex god — Ziggy Stardust. No one can argue that Bowie’s looks redefined gender, glam, sex, and rock n’ roll forever. His looks were filled with fantasy and flair from glitter suits and avant-garde kimonos, to space age jumpsuits — all coming from the mind of one man… Japanese designer, Kansai Yamamoto. Yamamoto is responsible for all of the Ziggy Stardust looks from his ‘Space Samarai’ to his ‘Spring Rain’ costume; with giant rounded legs, sequin stripes, and tear away red side panels. All of the world’s eyes were hypnotized by the babe that is Ziggy Stardust. Here are some of Yamamoto’s looks that set the stage for the rest of the glam rock revolution…
