Bandit Running Drops Performance-First Summer 2023 Collection


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.

“Joe is a natural embodiment of the intersection of goal-oriented running and elevated creative arts that Bandit aims to represent,” said Bandit creative director Tim West. “This 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.”

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 imrpint’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, “Stadium Blue,” “Haze,” “Into the Distance,” “Bandit Black” and “White.”

“This 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,” said West. “The silhouettes and colors represent the unmistakable, unique feeling of running in a New York City summer.”

Bandit’s Summer 2023 collection is now available to shop on the brand’s webstore. Take a look at the range in the lookbook, shot by Greer, above.
