Signature Stripes - Jennifer
Posted on December 27 2015
All of our Signature Stripes are named to honor someone dear to K-DEER founder and designer, Kristine. Our goal is to raise awareness and funds for non-profit organizations by celebrating the amazing women in her life, and giving back, one stripe at a time.
How did the Jennifer Stripe get named?
Our Jennifer Stripe is named after Jennifer Bandier, founder of the luxe athleisure retailer, Bandier. After a broken ankle left her to rehabilitate in comfy active wear, she hunted down the best active fashion brands out there and opened her first store in 2014. When K-DEER connected with Bandier buyers, and Jennifer and Kristine met, they soon found a mutual connection to Syracuse University, entrepreneurship and the hottest designs in active fashion.
Kristine dedicated this haute stripe to Jennifer to highlight the fierce, female entrepreneur behind the brand. Additionally, Jennifer is a likeminded business woman who cares about the people in her community, and through her involvement on the board of an NYC-based charity, Kristine knew this dedication would hold the integrity that all the stripes bear.
What was the inspiration for the color combo of the Jennifer?
When you think about the active New York girl, she loves her black and grey, no doubt. But what makes Jennifer stand out is that rush of hot red, grabbing your attention and making the statement, "watch out, here I come." It blended perfectly into our hot winter collection, launching January 4th, highlighting the energy and vibrancy of NYC through a story of black, grey, white and red.
How does my purchase give back, one stripe at a time?
A portion of the profits from the sale of each Jennifer stripe legging on www.k-deer.com goes directly to Culture for One, a charity that Jennifer is actively involved with. Culture for One provides children in foster care with cultural experiences that enrich a child's intellectual development and elevate their personal aspirations. They broaden the children's horizons through both exposure to the arts and the support of adults who encourage each child and serve as mentors.
