Real Talk with Ban.do

When we set out to bring you some of the cutest gifts around, there was no question that Ban.do was a perfect match! Between their fun, cheery products and positive message, it’s no secret why we’re obsessed with this LA-based powerhouse. We sat down with our friends at Ban.do to talk inspiration, staying organized and what it means to be #AerieREAL.

Aerie: Tell us about Ban.do! How did the company get started?

Ban.do: We started making one-of-a-kind hair accessories (think: flower crowns before they were a trend) that sold out pretty much immediately. The thing is, since they were one-of-a-kind, once they sold they were gone. So we began to make things in multiples, which allowed us to create accessible price points for every girl, and ban.do was born! We’ve evolved a lot since the beginning, but we’ve always been built on strong branding and the desire to bring fun products to all girls everywhere. We’ve always been very serious about fun!

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: We’re obsessed with ban.do’s bright, fun aesthetic. What inspires the team on a daily basis?

Ban.do: Why, thank you! We find inspiration in a lot of places: Pinterest, Instagram, and our spectacular ban.do girl gang, to name a few. Connecting and collaborating with artists is one of our favorite things. We’re also inspired by our Los Angeles office, a.k.a The Ban.do Party House! There’s a disco ball wall, glitter wallpaper, and a pop up shop in the back: major creative fuel. When we’re not at the office, we love to explore LA by checking out museum exhibits, catching a movie at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, or treasure hunting at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: Staying organized can be tough at times! Do you have any tips for how to step up your desk game?

Ban.do: Totally! Our latest product line is all about creating the ultimate dream desk. The goal is to make your desk a place that totally works for you AND that you love looking at. Because if you’re not inspired, what’s the point? We love putting the “fun” in functional with cute desk accessories like pretty file folders and notebooks, bright markers and washi tape, and extras like colorful prints and tiny disco balls. Disco balls definitely increase productivity. Or at least remind you to have regular dance parties.

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: Our ban.do collection is amazing! We know it’s hard to choose, but is there one product you’re REALLY excited about?

Ban.do: You guys, that’s basically impossible. But OK! We’re super excited about the I Am Very Busy Agenda, which is packed with magical things like compliments, stickers, a secret code language, and fun, weekly to-dos. People are obsessing over our agendas and interacting with them in really cool ways (see: #omgbandoagenda on Instagram), and we want to pop champagne and jump up and down about the whole thing!

Real Talk with Ban.do

Aerie: It’s no secret we’re excited to partner with a REAL company like ban.do! What does being #AerieREAL mean to you?

Ban.do: To us, being #AerieREAL means being who you are without apology and with a lot of celebrating and confetti-throwing. One of the phrases in our agenda is “Do whatever, be weird, it’s OK!” and we pretty much live by that. We can’t get enough of the individuality of our customers, who are sparkly, edgy, preppy, and everything in between. We’re all about inclusion, because that’s what makes things fun. And we just really want to be friends with everybody.

The coolest new partnership: AEO Flex/Denim x WFPF

If you asked the all-knowing Internet, “Internet, what is Parkour?” you’d likely get an answer describing it as “the activity of moving rapidly through any environment–typically an urban one–while running, jumping and climbing over obstacles.”

If you asked a Parkour historian, you’d probably learn that this “new” sport’s roots go all the way back to the early 1900s, when French naval lieutenant Georges Hebert developed a training method that combined obstacle course challenges with what he considered to be a more “natural” way of moving.

But if you asked any of us at the World Freerunning Parkour Federation (WFPF) that very same question, you’d receive a different (and definitely unanimous) response: Parkour is a way of life, a way of looking at the world and believing that there’s no obstacle we can’t overcome. Part martial art, part extreme sport, and part creative expression, Parkour’s unique physical and mental practice is truly a lifestyle–and one that continues to grow today, in almost every country around the globe.

That’s where we come in. Founded in 2008, WFPF brought together some of the world’s most accomplished Parkour athletes in an effort to preserve the sport’s values while also developing it responsibly. Over the years, we’ve worked with thousands of practitioners in over 50 countries. We’ve also partnered with a limited number of brands–usually those already rooted in the Parkour community–that share our enthusiasm for leading a positive, outside-the-box lifestyle.

So, when AEO came to us with their new AEO Flex/Denim line, we were curious… and when they told us that the jeans feature an innovative denim technology that allows for all kinds of extreme movement, we were excited.

We decided to put them to the ultimate test: Let’s see what some of the world’s top Parkour athletes can really do in them… and, hey, let’s film it too.

The result? Not only did we have an awesome time making the video, but, well, let’s just say you gotta see it to believe it. These jeans are the real deal.
