Move over Carbon 38, I’m maybe feeling Bandier.
Bandier is a fitness fashion boutique selling their own and other brands, online and in some brick and mortar locations. And they have some pants that cost $50, while Carbon 38 doesn’t.
Here are some tasty things I saw on their site:
I can tell that they are white on the inside, so they’ll look grey/see-through when stretched, which is a bummer. But still. I haven’t seen this kind of illustration-style graphic on leggings before…
Kule is the hipster sweatshirt brand of the moment. So Bandier is on top of it with this collab. I’m not showing you the velour track jackets because I refuse. Nor am I going to show you the leggings with black and white horizontal stripes that are a riff on Althleta and Onzie and a few others. But I do love these “knee socks built in”-looking leggings. Pretty clever. (I apologize for the arrows. I’m a lazy screen-grabber, those arrows are from the bandier site, they’re not active.)
I know. Burnout fabric is years old. Ombre is years old. But put them together and it feels a little new. And super cozy.
I can’t decide if these are rad or if they’d be a sweaty mess but I can’t look away, so I think I might love them…And I love blue on blue…so, yeah. I LOVE THEM!
Now I’m not saying this will work, but mega points for trying.
How cute is this? Is it rubber???!!!?? No. It’s neoprene. So great.
And for Halloween extra credit: Unicorn Pants!!!
What I like about Bandier:
- The site isn’t overwhelming.
- They don’t show pictures of things that are sold out (Why, Carbon 38? Why?).
- It’s a little more funky than “sexy rich lady.” (Still, lots of expensive things, but the vibe is different.)
- Check ’em out.
