Tamar Wider, owner of jewelry label The2Bandits, shares a deep connection to the Southwest with Wasson. This exclusive capsule collection takes influence from the Southwest’s landscape, colors, motifs, and culture. Wider and Wasson joined forces to turn this into a personal passion project for Nudie’s Rodeo Tailor, with sales proceeds benefitting its preservation.
Nudie’s is no stranger to eye-catching design. With an extraordinary archive of rhinestone-studded suits, Nudie’s has outfitted Tamar’s muses, including Dolly Parton, Elvis Presley, Gram Parson, and Johnny Cash. Though many may not be able to pull off a custom Nudie’s custom suit, this collaboration includes studded jewelry pieces that captures Nudie’s finesse for detail.
Tamar Wider on Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors
“I am personally such a huge fan of Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors and what Nudie Cohn created. My goal was to really mimic his visions into my jewelry. He was such a creative legend and it’s an honor to place his legacy next to The2Bandits.
The Nudie family was so excited about the concept and was so welcoming to us!”
Tamar Wider on working with Erin Wasson
“Erin and I are both from Dallas,Texas. We have a mutual love for the Nudie’s Brand. When I came up with this concept, there was no better person to contact than Erin Wasson.
When I emailed her, she emailed back immediately expressing her love for this project. She was super supportive and added so much passion to this project. During the shoot, we were just drooling over touching these precious suits, such rad history. She was a total star on set and it was such a great experience.”
