Next week with the release of our Summer '23 Collection, we're excited to introduce Stamina™, our all-new compression fabric platform. Bandit Chief Designer, Ardith Singh, breaks down the four things you're going to love about it.
Apologies for no pictures... You'll see next week.
Let's get into it:
- Stamina has all-way versatile stretch, which means the fabric can move not just north to south or east to west, but 360 degrees. The fabric has the same level of stretch no matter what direction its pulled in and allows for complete ease of movement. Stamina hugs, rather than constricts, every natural curve—it moves with your body.
- Stamina is matte-finished and sets itself apart from the rest of our collection. Matte as a texture is super flattering and I love the feeling it gives because you can settle into it and stay a while. Where Superbeam™ is sharp and a bit more of a statement fabric, Stamina™ has an attitude that you can comfortably wear on any and every day.
- We custom developed Stamina™ with black Lycra integrated, so when the fabric is stretched over the body, the integrity of the matte finish stays. Typically, compression fabrics use clear Spandex, which when stretched, creates a coppery-sparkle that compromises the overall aesthetic and shows where the fit is imbalanced.
- The way Stamina™ takes color is second to none. The combination of a fully dull yarn with the Lycra base takes bright, bold colors and makes them electric. Typically with matte fabrics, colors get can get washed out and you have to settle, but not Stamina™—they pop just the way we intended for Summer.
