All items will be exclusively available on Loungefly.com.

To celebrate the collection’s launch, Loungefly will host a one-of-a-kind fan event at Sugar ‘n Spice, the original frozen banana stand on Balboa Island in Newport Beach on Sunday, February 12, 2023. Additional details about the event will be announced at a later date.

Loungefly intricately designs backpacks, wallets, totes and crossbody bags, apparel, collectible enamel pins and additional accessories to tell wearable stories inspired by the most beloved properties in the world. Crafted with care and precision – leaving no detail overlooked – fans find value in every stitch as bag zippers to custom linings showcase their authentic passion for the fandom that they proudly wear.

“The Paul Frank brand began with custom wallets made in Huntington Beach, California. The Loungefly collection is reminiscent of those early collectibles – bold, playful and covetable,” said Paul Frank Global Brand Manager, Michael Puglisi.
