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.

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.

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…

BANDIT Babe Braids

Thanks to Pinterest we’ve got some major hair envy happening over here. We’ve gathered our favorite braided looks for inspo we wanna try out asap. The secret beauty of braids, dear Bandits,  is they stay better with dirty hair. Oh yeah. We’re definitely planning on staying cozy with a furry coat, adorned with messy braids and drizzled with rain droplets this Fall..
