HL: Why are you excited to co-host the opening of Bandier’s West Coast flagship?

Molly Sims: I have loved Bandier since their first store in Southampton. I knew they were going to be big when I could go to one place to mix and match my favorite workout pieces. Bandier is the epitome of L.A. culture, especially with all the wellness activations that the new store has to offer. Jennifer and Neil are so innovative and I am so excited to support them in their West Coast expansion.

HL: What are your favorite athleisure brands?

MS: Since I live in L.A., I am in athleisure 60-percent of the time. I love so many brands, but my favorites are Alo Yoga, Outdoor Voices, Beyond Yoga and of course Bandier’s athleisure line.

HL: What is your go-to workout?

MS: I just switched from circuit training to HIIT. I have lost 17 pounds just from doing HIIT—I am obsessed!

HL: What does it mean to you to finally have a Bandier flagship on the West Coast?

Jennifer Bandier: It is an absolute dream to have a store in L.A.! I started crying when I saw the store. I started in the music business so having a three-story flagship in a prime location in West Hollywood is beyond what I could have ever anticipated. When I first started Bandier, everyone told me this was the dumbest idea, so to see everyone actually enjoying the space means everything. Also, L.A. is the mecca of wellness, which is in the brand identity of Bandier. We hope to build a feel-good community beyond just our clothes.

HL: What is your favorite active-fashion look?

JB: I love tonal looks—black on black is my go-to. My favorite leggings are All Access—they are a game changer!

HL: What is your go-to workout?

JB: Anything dance.

HL: What is next for Bandier?

JB: I can’t say much, but we are working on a line of everyday wear that feels like active wear.
