This week we chat to the clever team behind Franks. An Australian based brand by the clever beings: Tim Garbis and Patrick Crea. We talk summer, the latest collection (which has just arrived in the short length and we will be receiving the longer length very soon) and of course some things you may not know about Franks.. enjoy! x
What has inspired your latest collection?
Franks inspiration follows the theme for all our collections; individualism and progressiveness. All Franks prints are hand drawn and we try to push the boundaries in mens shorts. We do a lot of travelling, in Europe, Asia and the US, so we pick up ideas everywhere, from street art to furniture. However, it was the beach culture of Australia that first inspired Franks and this continues to help define who Franks is.
5 things you can’t go through summer without
Lemon sorbet, champagne and vodka

BBQ – all day eating and drinking with friends

Something you might not know about Franks?
Franks name comes from co-founder Tim Garbis’s grand pa and a little black and white picture we found of Franks stood on his driveway in his short shorts in the 1950s.
