LOOKBOOK: THE 2 BANDITS
i can haz taylor warren wearing pretty jewelry?
The inspiration for the necklaces, cuffs, earrings, and rings came from Wider's boyfriend's carnival-themed restaurant, Straw. "We are always ordering fun vintage games, and I got reacquainted with pick-up sticks. At first I took the element of the sticks and made it fashion-forward by including unique shapes and stone settings," the designers explains, adding, "Then, I really started digging different types of sticks, like matchsticks." As is fitting of a Texas native (Wider describes her creative process as "go big or go home"), each piece works as well on its own as it does stacked, paired, or layered. It's a natural extension of the initial idea behind The 2 Bandits--the line launched in 2008 with boot accessories, before undergoing a, as Wider puts it, "brand rebirth in 2011, when I started thinking about lifestyles rather than literal things." So the lifestyle we recommend when wearing one of her leather bracelets or tie necklaces? Just like Wider and Warren did, head out to Russian River--or some other equally low-key spot so you "can be outdoors, but also have that glamping vibe."
