The Inspiration Behind The Bandolier x Ceci Collection: A Story of Art and Fashion

The Bandolier x Ceci New York Spring Phone Accessory Collection has taken the fashion world by storm, and for good reason. The collaboration has resulted in the creation of some truly unique pieces that combine art, fashion, and functionality seamlessly. Bandolier is a Los Angeles-based company that offers a stylish and practical solution for carrying your phone and essentials. The brand's signature crossbody phone case has become a must-have accessory for fashion-forward individuals who are constantly on-the-go. The company offers a wide range of luxury phone cases and accessories, each with its own unique style and functionality.

Our spring collection combines the beauty of nature with elegance to enhance any outfit. Each print was hand-painted and curated by Ceci Johnson, the Founder and Creative Director of Ceci New York. As a renowned artist and designer, her work is known for its bold use of color, texture, and ability to use watercolor to create beautiful and dynamic designs. For the Bandolier x Ceci Collection, Ceci drew inspiration from the beauty and renewal of spring.

The inspiration behind the collaboration we knew would focus on florals. Looking back on fashion and floral prints, they've always been there. That inspired us to create something different and add that hand-painted artistic exclusive touch. I wanted to make something elegant and chic with a little pop of color here and there. Just something that would elevate your everyday style and bring you confidence when you're wearing it.” - Ceci Johnson

The collection features pieces adorned with her hand-painted, colorful, and lush florals- reminiscent of some of Ceci's most famous pieces. For those looking to elevate their everyday look, the Bandolier x Ceci Collection offers the perfect opportunity to mix and match phone cases and accessories. The collection includes a variety of designs, each with their own unique color palette and pattern. Each piece is handmade from premium, genuine leather and features a crossbody strap that is adjustable to fit any body type. The strap is detachable, allowing for customization and versatility. The collection also includes wristlets and card holders, providing additional options for carrying your phone and essentials. Pairing a phone case with a coordinating crossbody strap or wristlet is a great way to add a pop of color and pattern to your outfit.

For those who prefer a more subtle look, the collection also includes neutral options such as the "Ceci Ivory Floral" print, which pairs well with any outfit. This print features an array of hand-painted delicate flowers in spring hues, including peonies, berry branches, olive branch leaves, tulips, anemones, and dahlias. These florals are set against an ivory background, creating a soft and feminine look that is perfect for spring. This print is ideal for those who adore a romantic and whimsical aesthetic.

For those who prefer a more dark-neutral aesthetic, this particular floral artwork, coined "Ceci Dark Floral" was designed with you in mind! Some may recognize this print as a Ceci New York fan favorite- Peony Maha, featuring gorgeous mauve roses and blushing pink peonies. The attention to detail and artistry in each print is evident, with the vibrant colors and intricate patterns coming to life on the Bandolier phone cases and accessories.
