Tamar Wilder definitely knows the importance of accessories and how to make them really enchanting and this can be seen in every single design found in the collection.
In an interview with astonishworld.com, the designer describes the 2 Bandits girl as “free spirited and wants to set herself apart from the rest of the birds. A lot of my inspiration comes from music festivals and the southwest. I started out making patchwork clothing and hemp necklaces and selling them in the back of my car in high school on band tours. It’s an amazing experience to mix your two favorite things together, music and crafts.”
The 2 Bandits Holiday 2013 collection is rife with outstanding necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, charms, belts and boot trims, which bear a distinctive southwestern and north American vibe mixed with vintage and boho-chic touches. It turns out that for this collection, besides using local materials, Tamar is also collaborating with Nest: “I love the nest team! I am still in the developmental process with the Guatemalan artisans on the design front. It looks like there will be some amazing tassels coming your way though,” the designer says.
Talking about the future, the designer said: “I would love for the 2 Bandits to become an internationally recognized brand and am working towards that every day, constantly evolving but staying true to the elements that make the collection what it is.”
As for the history behind the brand’s name, Tamara said: “It all started with craft nights while living in NYC. We weren’t trying to start a business but rather make accessories to compliment our clothing. While watching Martin Scorsese’s documentary, The Last Waltz, over and over again, I was so inspired by the wardrobe and overall vibe of the film. The name, The 2 Bandits, comes from the band, The Band. I’m so inspired by the lives of Van Morrison, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson, Bob Dylan, and all the others in the documentary. If you haven’t seen it, please do – it’s a life changer.”
