Based in Brooklyn, New York, Bandit is a premium purveyor of style-conscious performance and lifestyle running apparel. Now two years deep into business, the brand has pulled back the curtain on its Summer 2023 collection, marking the beginning of a new creative partnership with revered film photographer and competitive marathon runner, Joe Greer.
â€œJoe is a natural embodiment of the intersection of goal-oriented running and elevated creative arts that Bandit aims to represent,â€ said Bandit creative director Tim West. â€œThis partnership marks the beginning of a new era for Bandit and we could not be more excited to roll out this campaign over the coming days and weeks.â€
The collection, which features a total of 34 silhouettes in a variety of signature colorways, prioritizes technical fabrications for optimal running performance. Among the hallmarks, the imrpintâ€™s Stamina textile, a new compression fabric system made with community feedback in mind, possesses an all-way stretch composition that provides increased versatility and comfort to its wearers. Across a variety of fashion-forward tops and bottoms, Bandit introduces the fabric in tones including, â€œStadium Blue,â€ â€œHaze,â€ â€œInto the Distance,â€ â€œBandit Blackâ€ and â€œWhite.â€
â€œThis collection is the culmination of our community-centered design process and our commitment to pushing the sport of running in a fashion-forward direction without ever sacrificing functionality,â€ said West. â€œThe silhouettes and colors represent the unmistakable, unique feeling of running in a New York City summer.â€
Banditâ€™s Summer 2023 collection is now available to shop on the brandâ€™s webstore. Take a look at the range in the lookbook, shot by Greer, above.
