Amie Cunningham of Thief&Bandit discovered fashion design when she entered a T-shirt art contest. "It was really a bit of a happy accident falling into making and creating this brand," says Cunningham, who has a masters degree in painting and sculpting. These featured Desert Floral tights would brighten up any rainy day—or that coffee date your mom set you up on. Also, "with a leather jacket and boots the look is 'toughened up' so I think it would be perfect to wear to check out a band at a local club," says Cunningham. Thief&Bandit prints start as simple ink drawings, giving them "an imperfect look that is both easy and cool." Her inspirations come from art books, old magazines and botanical drawings. She especially loves graphic prints from the early '80s and '90s. Pieces are available at
