Launch You’ll Love: Paul Frank’s Collaboration With The Institute of American Indian ArtsAug 18, 2013 @ 1:00 pm
Whimsical accessory line Paul Frank has traded in their signature cartoon-inspired aesthetic for a more Southwetern feel thanks to their most recent collaboration with four Native American designers as part of their partnership with the Institute of American Indian Arts. The collection, which debuted at the Sante Fe Indian Market this past week, includes a wide range of products from funky hand-beaded sunglasses to festive print throw pillows, all designed to bring awareness to the Native American culture. “This collaboration has been an opportunity for us to help raise awareness about cultural misappropriations, which unfortunately happen too often in fashion,” said Elie Dekel, the President of Paul Frank’s parent company Saban Brands. “We hope this collaboration will demonstrate more appropriate ways to engage and celebrate the Native American communities.” Visit beyondthebuckskin.com to shop the collaboration including the necklace ($20), Paul Frank t-shirts ($30), sunglasses ($105) and more.
