A Dreamer. An Achiever. A Provocateur. A Dilettante. An Ingenue. Frankie is an artist, a musician, a limitless vision. Impervious and unguarded, Frankie lives as Frankie wishes.
Frankie is a ready-to-wear and denim collection made in the US and rooted in the Los Angeles Arts District. The Fall Winter 2016 collection is inspired by famed director Jean-Luc Godard’s landmark drama, “Vivre sa vie”.
Cultivated and covetable, the brand focuses on innovative shapes, signature silhouettes, and fine fabrics. A collective spirit and focused wanderlust, Frankie is as sublime as it is insatiable. Self-aware and bold, Frankie dreams big.
