Hong-Kong based C Ventures has made a minority investment in Bandier, the trendsetting athleisure retailer.
Since opening their first store in the Hamptons, husband-and-wife founders Jennifer Bandier and Neil Boyarsky have been setting the trend in #ActiveFashion. With several retail locations, on-site fitness classes, and a fast-growing e-commerce business that accounts for half of total sales, Bandier has established itself as an omnichannel leader in the booming athleisure industry.
