The CAMP collection is “inspired by the smell of fresh cut grass, color wars, contraband and that cute dude from Cabin 14. They remind you to always blaze your own trail, regardless of where life’s adventures take you. ” For if your missin’ the old days…

WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF AN IDEAL SUMMER CAMP? HOW DO WE SEE THIS VISION IN YOUR CAMP COLLECTION?
Effortless clothing made for making memories. In all CAMP Collection designs, you will feel nostalgic and cozy.

 

WOULD YOU SAY THERE IS INNOCENCE TO THE COLLECTION BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT IT’S BASED OFF OF SUMMER CAMP?

 

I would. CAMP Collection is clothes you play in, no matter where or who you play with. We think being comfortable is cool, because it shows you are comfortable with yourself.

 

WHAT TYPE OF SETTING IS THE CAMP COLLECTION PERFECT FOR?…BESIDES CAMP.

 

Any. We describe it as clothes you play in. I wear CAMP everyday.

WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO MOVE FROM JEWELRY TO CLOTHING DECIDES?

 

It was organic. I am from Texas which is what The2Bandits is inspired by. Every summer growing up, I went to camp in Lake of the Ozarks, MO at a camp called, Camp Sabra. It was there I learned a lot about myself and started thinking outside the box. I would sum it up as I have 2 main aesthetics which I call, BANDIT CAMP. One day, I’d like to start a jewelry line for CAMP Collection, It will happen organically, I’m not planning. Clothing seemed the most appropriate for CAMP. These 2 brands, The2Bandits and CAMP Collection are my babies, I am so passionate about my work.

 

PERSONALLY, MY FAVORITE PART OF SUMMER CAMP WAS GETTING TO BOND WITH KIDS FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY AROUND A WARM BONFIRE. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF SUMMER CAMP? 

 

My favorite part of camp is the friendships that form. CAMP friends are the best friends anyone can ask for. Every summer you escape your everyday life at such a young age and literally just have the most amount of fun daily with these people. I am still extremely close to these friends today. These are the people I went skinny dipping with and played spin the bottle with for the first time.  My husband who is my business partner at BANDIT CAMP also had the same experience. We both know each others CAMP friends well, they are special relationships.

WE SEE YOU LIKE ADVENTURES. WHERE IS YOUR IDEAL PLACE TO CAMP AND HAVE YOUR OWN ADVENTURES? WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON THIS ADVENTURE? 

 

Spontaneous Adventures.My husband and I are not planners, being a business owner, you just can’t plan an adventure so far in advance.We booked a hotel in Alaska in Feb. to see the Northern Lights but haven’t booked flights or anything else. For our honeymoon, we booked it 2 weeks prior to the trip. We went to Montana and Wyoming because one morning we woke up knowing that’s what we wanted to do. On the actual trip we would wake up and say, “what should we do”, and we would just do that. When you can be so spontaneous, it’s pretty epic. It’s freedom.

IF YOU CREATED A SOUNDTRACK THAT WOULD TELL THE STORY OF CAMP, WHAT WOULD IT BE IN 5 SONGS?

 

Music was such a huge part of Summer Camp. I also had the biggest crush on our song leader, Scott Goodman…he was so dreamy. Easy. Aside from CAMP CHEERS, The Grateful Dead and Phish, here are the top 5 songs we sang as a CAMP after lunch, daily…such amazing memories.
